Low Prevalence of H. pylori Infection in Patients with Gastroparesis
Gastroparesis is a condition characterized by gastric retention in the absence of physical obstruction. As part of an ongoing project aimed at determining the pathogenesis of reactive gastropathy, we hypothesized that patients with gastroparesis, in whom potentially noxious substances (e.g., non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, NSAID) have a prolonged contact with the gastric mucosa, would have a greater prevalence of chemical gastropathy than subjects with normal gastric motility.
