Abstract

A strong inverse highly significant association between peptic ulcer and blood-pressure has been demonstrated in an adult male population aged 40-49. This association holds with both the prevalence and incidence of peptic ulcer and was observed in each of the six areas of birth-groups into which the study population is divided. The association is stronger for diastolic than for systolic blood-pressure and is not removed by adjustment for the weight/height ratio. A weaker negative association was found at older ages, but this could easily have been due to chance.
