Abstract

Dyspepsia is complex disturbance of gastrointestinal tract leading to certain discomfort, in particular, stomach ache and then to such complications as gastritis, stomach ulcer and stomach cancer. Frequently these complications are related to the infection caused by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). The aim of our study was to investigate the characteristic and source of the prevalence of Helicobacter infection in some regions of Georgia, the frequency of H. pylori and dyspepsia caused by it in some patients and volunteers. Subjects: patients descriptive study in policlinics, volunteer fishermen who fish in the river Mtkvari, Gardabani municipality agricultural workers who use the river Mtkvari water to irrigate. Materials: The river Vere water sample (Vere ravine-Gachiani bridge) and the river Mtkvari (Rustavi-Gardabani areas) water sample, population questionnaires. Methods: Blood serum study by immunosorbent analysis methods (ELISA), microbiological assays. Results: 110 volunteers were participating in the experiment -42 (38.1%) men and 68 (62.8%) women. Out of 110 volunteers 82(74.5%) had positive reaction to H.pylori presence by ELISA method [46 (56%) in women and 36 (44%) in men] Conclusion: Helicobacter pylori was detected in the river Vere water sample (Vere ravine-Gachiani bridge) and the river Mtkvari (Rustavi-Gardabani areas) water sample.
