Vitamin B12 Deficiency and H. pylori Infection
Clinical Trial ( IRB ) #: 17-068-2
Title: Vitamin B12 Deficiency and H. pylori Infection
Principal Investigator: Dr. Jose Orellana
Description: In this study we aim to determine if there is a link between vitamin B12 deficiency/macrocytic anemia and H. pylori infection in the patients at the UConn Southington Primary Care Office. This will be done in order to discern if H. pylori testing would be efficacious for individuals at this office found to be anemic or deficient in vitamin B. In order to do this we will conduct a retrospective chart review with the goal of analyzing data for approximately 100 patients. We will use billing codes to identify patients with diagnoses of vitamin B12 deficiency or megaloblastic anemia and exclude those with diagnoses of pernicious anemia. Patient identifying information will not be included in data collection. Statistical analysis will be performed to determine if there is a statistically significant difference between patients with vitamin B12 deficiency and those with both vitamin B12 deficiency and H. pylori infection.
