Helicobacter Pylori IgG Specific Antibodies in Association with Serum Albumin in Maintenance Hemodialysis Patients
Azar Baradaran and Hamid Nasri

Abstract:
This study was conducted to determine the association of serum albumin of hemodialysis patients with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. 124 subjects consisting of 44 (F = 27 M = 17) hemodialysis (HD) patients with 34 (F = 21 M = 13) non diabetic hemodialysis and 10 (F = 4 M = 6) diabetic hemodialysis patients and also 88 patients (F = 50 M = 38 ) were studied. In this study significant inverse correlations of Helicobacter pylori IgG antibodies with serum albumin and with dialysis adequacy were seen. Also near significant inverse correlations of Helicobacter pylori IgG antibodies with dialysis duration and dosage were seen too. The inverse correlation of H. pylori infection with serum albumin may show its important role in malnutrition of hemodialysis which frequently seen in these patients.
