The Association of Helicobacter Pylori in the Pathogenesis of Hyperemesis Gravidarum in Pregnant Women

2016-07-13 00:08:21 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study to explore the association between Hyperemesis Gravidarum in pregnant women and Helicobacter pylori infection.


This study included 90 pregnant women during their first trimester who attended Ain Shams University Maternity Hospital antenatal clinic and admitted in the ward.

Patients were divided into two groups: 46 cases of pregnant women with H.G and 44 healthy control pregnant women with no vomiting.

Both groups were matched regarding the inclusion criteria which includes maternal age (18-40 years), gestational age (<16 wks), and signs and symptoms of H.G for cases (vomiting affecting the general condition, ketonuria, weight loss) and excluding cases or controls with multiple gestation, hyadatiform disease or maternal disease causes vomiting such as ; pyelonephritis, gastroenteritis, cholecystitis or hepatitis.

The two groups were subjected to full history taking, clinical examination, routine laboratory investigations (urine analysis, CBC, liver, kidney function tests Na, k, PT, PTT & INR) Abdominal ultrasound was done to assess fetal life and gestational age and to exclude gestational trophoblastic disease and multiple gestation pregnancy.H.Pylori infection was assessed by using One step H.pylori Stool Antigen Test.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A projective test used to evaluate a broad range of personality variables including pathology of thought and perception. The subject's responses to inkblot prints are scored along with subjective interpretation by the test administrator.

A test to determine the lowest sound intensity level at which fifty percent or more of the spondaic test words (words of two syllables having equal stress) are repeated correctly.

Tests of accuracy in pronouncing speech sounds, e.g., Iowa Pressure Articulation Test, Deep Test of Articulation, Templin-Darley Tests of Articulation, Goldman-Fristoe Test of Articulation, Screening Speech Articulation Test, Arizona Articulation Proficiency Scale.

Method of measuring the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy. It is used to monitor the therapy in BACTERIAL ENDOCARDITIS; OSTEOMYELITIS and other serious bacterial infections. As commonly performed, the test is a variation of the broth dilution test. This test needs to be distinguished from testing of the naturally occurring BLOOD BACTERICIDAL ACTIVITY.

Skills and strategies, unrelated to the traits a test is intended to measure, that may increase test takers' scores -- may include the effects of coaching or experience in taking tests. (ERIC Thesaurus)
