AbstractHelicobacter pylori (H.pylori) had been confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO) as Group 1 carcinogens, in which it has been identified to be related with the development of gastric carcinoma. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is less commonly found in Asia, while the number of H.pylori infection is considerably to be higher than that of the Western population. The relationship between H.pylori and GERD still remains ambiguous nowadays. One of the contributing factors affecting the level of gastric secretion might be due to the genetic cause. The aim of this review is to assess whether the current first-line therapy on GERD would be effective or not in relieving the symptoms of the patients with H.pylori infection.
