The peptic ulcer was developed at appeared recently as a contagious disease, distributed all over the world and the most common cause of this disease is H.pylori. Laboratory diagnosis was used to detect this bacterium by several methods which include invasive and non-invasive methods. . ELISA technique was used to identify IgG, IgM, and IgA antibodies against H. Pylori. All participants underwent endoscopic procedures at the Duhok City/Azadi Hospital/Endoscopy Center, and a highly skilled endoscopist carried out the procedures, As well questionnaire form has been filled out through the interview with the participants to enroll the socio-demographic factors which include occupation, history of treatment, and endoscopic findings. Among the 90 participants, the serological prevalence is 72%, 7%, and 30% of positive antibodies IgG, IgM, and IgA respectively. The housewife group recorded a high percentage of positive IgG whereas low percentages were recorded for the military group. A significant immune reaction of IgG in the student group has been noted. In addition to the housewife group to the positive IgM. The effect of those who had treatment previously has been revealed by positive IgG. Moreover, antral gastritis had a significant relationship with positive IgG by using ELISA. in the conclusion, the Housewives group was more infected with this bacterium, and a significant association was found between antral gastritis and seropositive IgG .
