The goal of this study is focused on the effect of BabA was investigated as being responsible for the adhesion of bacteria to epithelial tissue to make colonization and using this gene is an effective method to diagnosis this bacteria.


The Methods: The clinical samples were taken during the period from August 2018 to March 2019 for 58 men and 54 women, their ages between 10-80 years old. Detection of the H. pylori infection by demonstration of BabA gene. Out of 112 patients suffering from dyspepsia attending Al- Husain medical city / digestive system diseases center, Karbala city.


According to, the detection of H. pylori infection from gastric biopsies by many methods culturing bacteria from the clinical samples on selective media Columbia agar, morphological test likes gram’s stain, biochemical including urease, oxidase, catalase, Oxoid biochemical identification system (D-O.B.I.S) and API CAMPY identification test and molecular identification.


Results: It was found high infection rates of H. pylori in Karbala city 87 (71.3%) patients were positive H. pylori infection, the females had more frequent of H. pylori infection than males, and the infection was more in younger ages.

There are many tests used to detect H. pylori infection.


The highest percentage of these was PCR, especially when using more than one gene multiplex PCR, then urease test as rapid local test , then culturing that used especial requirements to grow bacteria which was considered fastidious and then gram’s stain. Also, this study showed a very important relation between H. pylori infection and iron deficiency anemia due to the iron was utilized by bacterial colonization during infection leading to malabsorption of iron.
