Helicobacter pylori infection and gastroduodenal injury by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology. Supplement

Helicobacter pylori infection with active gastritis is comparably common in non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) users and controls. The prevalence of active acute gastritis and its severity relate to H. pylori infection and not to use or non-use of NSAIDs. In individual patients active gastritis may deteriorate during long-term NSAID therapy but is rare in aspirin users. Among NSAID users those with H. pylori gastritis appear to have more dyspeptic symptoms, repeated intolerance to different NSAIDs, and often a history of ulcer disease. For current ulcers, NSAID use, chemical gastritis, and active gastritis due to H. pylori are independent risk factors. For gastric ulcer the risks are additive. For duodenal ulcer only H. pylori is a clearly defined risk factor: duodenal ulcers may not occur in H. pylori-negative NSAID users. In gastroduodenal mucosa NSAIDs may augment acute inflammation caused by H. pylori, and inflammation may exacerbate the biochemical injury to these tissues caused by NSAIDs.

Atrophic Gastritis

Atrophic Gastritis is a process where gastric glandular cells are lost and replaced with firbous tissues, as a result of chronic inflammation. Learn more about Atrophic Gastritis here.
