helicobacter pylori infection in the colombian andes: a population-based study of transmission 1992, the authors studied helicobacter pylori infection and exposures relevant to person-to-person, waterborne, foodborne, and zoonotic transmission in a census sample of 684 2-9-year-old children in aldana, nariño, a rural community in the colombian andes. h. pylori prevalence, as determined by the 13c-urea breath test, was 69%, and prevalence increased from 53% in 2 year-olds to 87% in 9 year-olds. beginning at 3 years of age, a higher percentage of males compared with females were infected ...19968686698
effect of helicobacter pylori infection on growth velocity of school-age andean children.helicobacter pylori infection affects about half of the world's population and is usually acquired in childhood. the infection has been associated with chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer, and stomach cancer in adulthood. little is known, however, about its consequences on child health. we examined the effect of h. pylori infection on growth among school-age children in the colombian andes by comparing growth velocity in the presence and absence of h. pylori infection.201121068668
plasma selenium measurements in subjects from areas with contrasting gastric cancer risks in inverse association between selenium status and incidence of different neoplasias including gastric cancer has been reported. this pilot study aimed to determine and compare selenium status in two colombian populations with different gastric cancer risks: a high-risk area in the volcanic region of the andes mountains and a low-risk area on the pacific coast.200818375257

intestinal helminthiasis in colombian children promotes a th2 response to helicobacter pylori: possible implications for gastric carcinogenesis.colombians living in coastal tumaco have a lower incidence of helicobacter pylori-associated gastric cancer compared with residents of pasto in the high andes. considering the risk for h. pylori disease seems affected by features of bacterial virulence and host polymorphisms, other poorly understood influences, such as concurrent helminthiasis, may also be important.200515941957
