The relative contribution of gastric acid secretion and Helicobacter pylori infection to low-dose aspirin-induced gastropathy remains to be clarified. This is partly because the capability of the infection to modify gastric acid secretion complicates the interaction. The aim of this study was to estimate the association of aspirin-induced mucosal injury, as well as H. pylori infection, with gastric acid output. A total of 186 male outpatients, comprising 60 aspirin takers, on 100 mg of enteric… CONTINUE READING
