Background: Helicobacter pylori infection is highly rampant and approximately half of the world's population is infected with this bacterium. Urea breath test (UBT) is the most important non-invasive method for diagnosing Helicobacter pylori. This study aims to evaluate frequency of H. pylori infection in Salmas County using Urea Breath Test (UBT).

In this study, Spss21 software were used for Chi-square test and T-test to analyze statistical data.
Results: 37 people out of 80 were infected with H. pylori (46%) and 43 had no infection (54%). Groups aged between 31-40 years old and 60-51 years old were included in high risk groups for infection and risk of gastric cancer. The study revealed, there was a significant relationship between smoking and women's education level with the incidence of infection in patients.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that there is a indirect correlation between H. pylori infection and one’s education level. By increasing the level of knowledge and health awareness associated with the factors involved in the development of the disease, the prevalence of H. pylori infection can be reduce to a desirable level.
