Conclusion

Notwithstanding the enormous amount of information available on the role ofH. pylori in ulcer disease, in many respects we are still in the early stages of understanding the precise roles of specificH. pylori organisms in mucosal ulceration. Also, we are still determining the most efficacious treatment of ulcers and prevention of relapses. Although it is probably still correct to state “no acid, no ulcer,” one cannot yet say “noH. pylori, no ulcer.”
