Pylori when used in combination with two antibiotics (clarithromycin 250 mg daily or tetracycline 500 mg twice daily42 or amoxycillin 1 g twice daily43 for 7 days only. The observed ITT eradication rates with the 7-day regimens ranged from 71% to 100%. The H. 44 RBC-based triple therapy for 7 days containing clarithromycin with either metronidazole or tetracyclin is a simple, effective and well-tolerated regimen for the treatment of H. pylori infection. 45 However, few data are available of head-to-head comparisons in which information on primary resistance is reported.

The degree and also the duration of their acid inhibitory effect proved to be dominant in the prevention of NSAIDinjury. H2-receptor antagonist therapy Several short- and long-term studies have shown that H2RAs are effective in the prevention of gastroduodenal damage. When given in equivalent acid suppressive dosages, all H2RAs have a similar effect. 112 H2RAs might be effective in the prevention of gastric ulcers at high doses. 114 Proton-pump inhibition The degree and also the duration of acid inhibition appears to be important for the prevention of NSAID-induced injury, suggesting that PPIs should provide superior protection compared with H2RAs.

Pylori and its antimicrobial resistance to metronidazole and clarithromycin should be evaluated, to facilitate the selection for an alternative therapy. The effect of post-treatment resistance has a greater impact on the retreatment efficacy than pretreatment resistance on the initial treatment. Therefore, in general, rescue therapies should not include antibiotics with proven resistance to H. pylori. g. imidazoles or macrolides). 73,74 If clarithromycin-resistance is present, replacing clarithromycin by an imidazole can be a good second-line PPI-triple regimen.
