Abstract: 

Introduction: Helicobacter pylori, is a Gramnegative, microaerophilic bacterium found in the stomach. It has been reported that more than 50% of the world's population harbor H. pylori in their upper gastrointestinal tract. However, there are no such estimations from rural population in Iran. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of H. pylori in the rural population of Kavar city, southern of Iran.
Methods: We enrolled 240 patients from Kavar Cohort Study who were checked and be positive for total IgG against H. pylori. They recalled for stool sampling and name, age and gender were recorded.
The H. pylori stool antigen was checked using ELISA test. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS version 20 and P<0.05 was considered as significant difference.
Results: Our patients were 93 men (38.8%) and 147 women (61.2%). Also we found 183 (76.3%) patients as positive for H. pylori stool antigen. There were no significant association between gender and H. pylori stool antigen positivity (P=0.776). Also, no differences were detected between different age categorized in positivity for stool antigen of H. pylori (P=0.177). The mean and SD of age for negative and positive groups were 40.98
± 15.42 and 43.65± 15.65 years, respectively (P=0.267).
Conclusion: We found that the positivity rate of stool antigen for H. pylori was about 76% that is higher than normal reported rate. Further studies in larger sample size and also in different rural populations are needed.
