Treatment of Campylobacter Gastritis with Bismuth Salts
Bismuth compounds have been used for over two centuries for the treatment of various gastrointestinal disorders because of their local protective demulcent, antacid and antidiarrhoeal properties. Bismuth salts also have an antimicrobial effect against Campylobacter pylori (McNulty et al. 1985) and other gastrointestinal pathogens (Manhart 1984).
