AbstractThe research was concerned with chemical analysis of the gastric juice in duodenal ulcer patients caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. The study included (25) patients (13 males and 12 females) attending endoscopy unit of Salam General Hospital where gastric juice was taken. Also gastric juice from (25) normal healthy subjects (13 from males and 12 females) as control were collected for chemical analysis. The chemical analysis of gastric juice included measurement of electrolytes (Na+, K+, Ca+2 and Cl-) lactate, glucose, total lipids, iron in addition to conductivity and viscosity. The results of statistical analysis predicted significant differences in the levels of sodium, chloride, iron, lactate, glucose and conductivity in gastric juice of duodenal ulcer male patients infected with H. pylori in comparison to control male. However, potassium, calcium, total lipids and viscosity showed non significant difference. Females patients, however, showed significant differences for sodium, iron, calcium, lactate, glucose, total lipids and viscosity while potassium, chloride and conductivity showed non significant differences in comparison with healthy females.
