Helicobacter Species in the Intestinal Mucosa of Patients with Ulcerative Colitis


American Society for Microbiology


In a search for Helicobacter species in the intestinal mucosae of 42 patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and 74 without UC, only H. pylori was found. Although the bacterium was detected in UC patients by culture (7.1%) and nested PCR (19.0%), its presence was not associated with the disease (P = 0.13).
