In the United States, 30% of the adult population is infected. (50% of infected persons are infected by the age of 60.)One out of every six patients with H. pylori infection will develop ulcers of the duodenum or stomach. H. pylori also is associated with stomach cancer and a rare type of lymphocytic tumor of the stomach called MALT lymphoma.
