prevalence of helicobacter pylori infection among adult dyspeptic patients in developing countries such as ethiopia, where chronic gastritis and peptic-ulcer disease are the most common endoscopic findings, it is important to study the association between helicobacter pylori infection and gastroduodenal diseases. both invasive and non-invasive diagnostic methods were therefore used to investigate 300, consecutive, adult patients with dyspepsia, from the gastrointestinal clinic of tikur anbassa university hospital, addis ababa. the apparent overall prevalence of h. pylo ...200415035728
