The association of hepatitis A and Helicobacter pylori with sensitization to common allergens, asthma and hay fever in a population of young British adults.

Previous infection with hepatitis A and Helicobacter pylori was assessed in a community-based sample of young British adults and associations with serum-specific IgE to environmental allergens, asthma-like symptoms and hay fever were examined. There was no evidence that infection with hepatitis A or H. pylori was associated with lower levels of IgE sensitisation, asthma or hay fever except for a single finding of a negative association of H. pylori infection with grass sensitisation.
