Background: Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori) is one of the most common infectious bacteria cause diseases such as chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer, adenocarcinoma. Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that individuals who had O blood group were more likely to develop peptic ulcers. The aim of this study was to investigate the associ ation between the prevalence of H. Pylori infection in soldiers and military students and their ABO, Rh blood group in Tehran city.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study 417 individuals aged 18-27 years who were selected from military students of AJAUMS (AJA University of Medical Sciences) University of Afsari Imam Ali and other soldiers. Personal, social and health information of individuals were collected through questionnaires. The phenotype of ABO blood groups and Rh in all participants were studied by a standard hem-agglutination test. Antibody levels of Anti- H. pylori IgG in serum of all participants were determined by ELISA test. Collected data analyzed by using SPSS software version 16 and Chi-square test.
Results: Overall 183 (43.9%) of 417 subjects were seropositive, and 234 (56.1%) subjects were seronegative for anti- H. pylori antibody. Prevalence of infection in AJAUMS students compared to other two groups was significantly lower. However, the prevalence of infection in the group of individuals with more than five family members was significantly higher than the group with less than 5.
Conclusion: There was no association between ABO, Rh blood groups and H. Pylori infection.

Keywords: Helicobacter Pylori, ABO blood group, Rh blood group, military students
