Abstract

H. pylori is a major pathogen involved in gastric inflammation, gastroduodenal ulcers and probably some types of gastric cancer. Treatment with single antimicrobial agents has failed to eradicate H. pylori in various disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract. The most successful treatment for the eradication of the microorganism from the gastric mucosa includes combination of colloidal bismuth subcitrate, tetracycline, amoxicillin and metronidazole, but is still suboptimal6. A consensus agreement for the optimal therapy (greatest efficacy with fewest secondary effects and lowest cost) has to be established.
