helicobacter pylori in the canadian arctic: seroprevalence and detection in community water samples.many north american arctic communities are characterized by risk markers associated with helicobacter pylori (h. pylori) infection, including overcrowded housing and inadequate water supply and sanitation systems. our aim was to determine the seroprevalence of h. pylori infection in two traditional inuit communities in the central canadian arctic and to test for the presence of h. pylori, by polymerase chain reaction (pcr), in local water supplies.199910406242
helicobacter pylori infection in canadian and related arctic aboriginal 2006, the canadian helicobacter study group identified aboriginal communities among canadian population groups most at risk of helicobacter pylori-associated disease. the objective of this systematic review was to summarize what is known about the h pylori-associated disease burden in canadian and related arctic aboriginal populations to identify gaps in knowledge. six health literature databases were systematically searched to identify reports on h pylori prevalence in canadian population gr ...200818354758

helicobacter pylori incidence and re-infection in the aklavik h. pylori project.the aklavik h. pylori project (ahpp) ( is a community-driven project examining helicobacter pylori infection and its influence on health in a diverse aboriginal community in the northwest territories. initial research revealed that 58% of 333 participants who underwent a urea breath test (ubt) between 2007 and 2010 were h. pylori-positive. from 2008 to 2010, we offered treatment to h. pylori-positive participants and 113 consented to this treatment.201323967417
challenges in conducting community-driven research created by differing ways of talking and thinking about science: a researcher's perspective.increasingly, health scientists are becoming aware that research collaborations that include community partnerships can be an effective way to broaden the scope and enhance the impact of research aimed at improving public health. such collaborations extend the reach of academic scientists by integrating a variety of perspectives and thus strengthening the applicability of the research. communication challenges can arise, however, when attempting to address specific research questions in these co ...201323986884
a randomized controlled trial comparing sequential with triple therapy for helicobacter pylori in an aboriginal community in the canadian north.helicobacter pylori infection occurs more frequently in arctic aboriginal settings than elsewhere in north america and europe. research aimed at reducing health risks from h pylori infection has been conducted in the aboriginal community of aklavik, northwest territories.201324340314
