  1. Univariate analysis was performed by using the independent sample t-test, Pearson Chi-square test or Fisher Exact test where appropriate. A P-value of < 0.05 was considered as statistically significant. *All the H. heilmannii and H. felis PCR positive patients were also positive for H. pylori PCR amplification.
