Abstract Background Alcohol intake has been suggested to have an impact on the development of many chronic diseases. How alcohol intake may modulate risk of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, however, remains a subject open for investigation. A dose–response meta-analysis was performed of epidemiological studies to better quantify this relationship. Materials and methods Twelve observational articles were identified. The summary odds ratio (OR) and confidence intervals (CI) were… 
Prevalence and Risk Factors for Helicobacter Pylori Infection among Healthy Inhabitants in Northern Jakarta, Indonesia
TLDR
The study indicated that person-person transmission is possible in this low prevalence area of Northern Jakarta using a sensitive 13C-urea breath test, and any associations with lifestyle/environment factors and potential routes of transmission were examined.
Relationship between primary eradication of Helicobacter pylori and drinking habits in women: collaborative research between a pharmacy and a clinic
TLDR
Frequent consumption of alcohol is not only likely to affect eradication, but also has a large impact on the bodies of women, who are more susceptible than men to the effects of alcohol, so women should take greater care in alcohol consumption.
Association of dietary patterns and endoscopic gastric mucosal atrophy in an adult Chinese population
TLDR
A high adherence to both “Alcohol and Fish” and “Coarse cereals” dietary patterns seem to be associated with higher odds of endoscopic gastric mucosal atrophy in men and in patients without H. pylori infection.
Risk Factors for and Prevalence of Helicobacter Pylori Infection among Healthy Inhabitants in Northern Jakarta, Indonesia.
TLDR
The study indicated that person-person transmission was possible in this low prevalence area and the low infection rates of H. pylori among those of Javanese, Betawi, and Sundanese ethnicity could be partly due to sanitary practice.
Association of Helicobacter Pylori With Development of Peptic Ulcer Disease Among Cirrhotic Patients: An Evidence From Population-Based Study
TLDR
H. pylori are associated with PUD and concurrent cirrhosis, although it is less prevalent than general population, and African American, Hispanic, and smoking were independently associated with increased odds of H. pyleori infection.
The interaction between smoking, alcohol and the gut microbiome.
Helicobacter pylori Infection, Virulence Genes' Distribution and Accompanying Clinical Outcomes: The West Africa Situation
TLDR
Gaps in the body of knowledge are identified highlighting the need for more studies to clarify the role of H. pylori virulence factors and associated clinical outcomes in the burden of this bacterial infection in West Africa, as data from these countries do not give the needed direct relation.
Seroprevalence and Risk Factors of the Helicobacter pylori Infection in Bukavu City in the Democratic Republic of Congo
TLDR
Assessment of seroprevalence of H. pylori and its determinant factors in Bukavu, the capital city of Southern Kivu Province in Eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo, recommends implementing appropriate sanitation and hygiene activities, health education programs, and further investigations for addressing this endemic infection locally.
The number of household members as a risk factor for peptic ulcer disease
TLDR
The number of household members was associated with PUD, age, body mass index, waist circumference, systolic blood pressure, hemoglobin, glucose, location (urban/rural), income, education level, stress, current drinking, and smoking in both sexes.
Helicobacter pylori Recurrence after Eradication Therapy in Jiangjin District, Chongqing, China

Effect of alcohol consumption on the risk of Helicobacter pylori infection.
To investigate the effect of alcohol consumption on the risk of Helicobacter pylori infection, standardized questionnaires on drinking habits were used to interview 451 patients, whose H. pylori
Inverse relationship between alcohol consumption and active Helicobacter pylori infection: the Bristol Helicobacter project
TLDR
It is indicated that modest consumption of wine and beer (approximately 7 units/wk) protects against H. pylori infection, presumably by facilitating eradication of the organism.
Alcohol consumption and Helicobacter pylori infection: results from the German National Health and Nutrition Survey.
TLDR
The hypothesis that moderate alcohol consumption may facilitate spontaneous elimination of H. pylori infection among adults is supported, as reported by the German National Health and Nutrition Survey.
Relation of adult lifestyle and socioeconomic factors to the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection.
TLDR
Male gender, living with a partner and poor adult socioeconomic conditions are associated with increased risk of H. pylori infection.
Alcohol as a Gastric Disinfectant? The Complex Relationship between Alcohol Consumption and Current Helicobacter pylori Infection
TLDR
The hypothesis that moderate alcohol consumption may favor suppression and eventual elimination of H. pylori infection is supported, as the antimicrobial effects of alcoholic beverages may be opposed by adverse systemic effects of drinking, such as adverse effects on the immune defense.
Relationship between alcohol consumption and active Helicobacter pylori infection.
TLDR
In patients with functional dyspepsia, there is no significant association between active H. pylori infection and drinking or smoking, however, alcohol consumption appears to be associated with H. Pylori infections.
Association of Helicobacter pylori infection with lifestyle, chronic disease, body-indices, and age at menarche in Danish adults
TLDR
It is concluded that wine drinking is associated with lower rates of H. pylori infection in Danish adults and may relate to a history of late menarche and chronic bronchitis in Danish women.
Helicobacter pylori infection in Ontario: prevalence and risk factors.
TLDR
The prevalence of H pylori infection in Ontario is comparable with that of other developed countries, and age, sex, number of siblings, ethnicity, place of birth and age at immigration are among the factors associated with H pylonori infection.
Relation between alcohol consumption and the success of Helicobacter pylori eradication therapy using omeprazole, clarithromycin and amoxicillin for 1 week
TLDR
Daily alcohol consumption appears to have an additive effect in this eradication therapy for Helicobacter pylori, with a higher probability of failure in non-consumers than in consumers.
