The seroprevalence of Helicobacter pylori and its relationship to malaria in Ugandan children.Helicobacter pylori epidemiology in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly among children, has been little investigated. A secondary endpoint of our study was to examine for associations between the seroprevalence of H. pylori and the incidence of malaria. We explored H. pylori prevalence by measuring serum IgG antibodies to H. pylori whole cell and cytotoxin-associated gene A (CagA) antigens by ELISA in a longitudinal cohort of 200 Ugandan children, aged 1-10 years at enrollment, in whom malaria inci ...201222018600

faecal calprotectin concentrations in apparently healthy children aged 0-12 years in urban kampala, uganda: a community-based survey.calprotectin is a calcium and zinc binding protein, abundant in neutrophils and is extremely stable in faeces. faecal calprotectin is used as a non-specific marker for gastrointestinal inflammation. it has a good diagnostic precision to distinguish between irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease. studies have established normal concentrations in healthy children; all these studies have been performed in high-income countries. the objective of this study was to determine the conce ...201121284894
