In five subsequent open clinical studies, 180 patients with Helicobacter pylori (HP)-associated ulcer disease (n = 163) or severe functional dyspepsia (n = 17) requiring therapy were treated with either 40 mg omeprazole plus 4 x 500 mg amoxicillin suspension for 1 wk (group I, n = 35), 2 x 40 mg omeprazole plus 4 x 500 mg amoxicillin for 1 wk (group II, n =(More)
Treatment with amoxicillin and omeprazole resulted in encouraging Helicobacter pylori eradication rates in pilot studies that included medium term follow up. These results were evaluated in a prospective, randomised and controlled study. Forty patients with active duodenal ulcer disease and H pylori colonisation of the gastric mucosa were randomly assigned(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of two 1-week low-dose triple therapy regimens for the treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty patients with H. pylori infection and peptic ulcer disease (n = 64) or functional dyspepsia (n = 16), with similar demographic and clinical characteristics, were treated for 1 week(More)
Granular cells can occur in various odontogenic and non-odontogenic tumours. 5 granular cell lesions, one granular cell ameloblastoma, one so-called granular cell ameloblastic fibroma and three granular cell tumours were examined immunohistochemically for the intermediate filaments cytokeratin, vimentin, desmin, neurofilaments and the neural markers NSE and(More)
A prospective study including 119 patients submitted for routine endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract was initiated to compare three commercial biopsy urease tests with regard to sensitivity and specificity in detecting Helicobacter pylori colonization of the gastric mucosa and their reaction velocity. Specific culture, microscopy after staining(More)
METHODS Fifty patients with relapsing or complicated Helicobacter pylori positive duodenal (n = 41) or gastric ulcer disease (n = 9) and failure of a combined treatment with omeprazole plus amoxycillin to eradicate H. pylori infection were re-treated with either oral triple therapy (bismuth subsalicylate, metronidazole, tetracycline) plus ranitidine [group(More)
BACKGROUND The aims of this study were to evaluate a Helicobacter pylori eradication schedule for H. pylori-positive gastroduodenal ulcer bleeding, which could be commenced intravenously after endoscopic diagnosis, and to assess the effect of omeprazole pretreatment on bacterial eradication. METHODS In a prospective study 20 consecutive patients with H.(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of the application route of the antibiotic amoxicillin in Helicobacter pylori eradication, using omeprazole/amoxicillin. METHODS In a prospective medium-term study, 31 patients with H. pylori-positive gastroduodenal ulcer disease were treated with a 14-day course of 20 mg omeprazole bid(More)
