Title: Prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection and its association with lipid profiles
Author: Y. Sun, D. Fu, Y. K. Wang, M. Liu, X. D. Liu


OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori, HP) infection in subjects receiving routine physical examination and its associations with age, sex, body mass index (BMI) and lipid profiles.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Clinical information of 22,103 individuals who took routine physical examinations, including that on age, gender, height, weight, triglyceride, total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and data of HP infection were collected and analyzed.
RESULTS: H. pylori infection rate in 22,103 subjects taking routine physical examination was 44.5 %. More men tended to be infected with H. pylori than women (45.9 % vs 42.8 %; p < 0.01).

The highest positive rate group was in the age group of 30–39 years (46.8 %) and the lowest rate was in the age group younger than 30 years (40.5 %). The obese had higher infection rate than the non-obese (p < 0.01). Mann–Whitney U test was used to explore the relationships between lipid profiles and H. pylori infection. There were significant associations among HDL, triglyceride and HP infection (p < 0.01). However, significant differences were not confirmed between cholesterol, LDL and H. pylori infection.
CONCLUSION: H. pylori infection was common among subjects receiving physical examination in Shanghai and it was most significantly associated with HDL and triglyceride, indicating that H. pylori might be a new cardiovascular risk factor (Tab. 3, Ref. 23).
