Optimum duration of regimens for Helicobacter pylori eradication.
TLDR
The relative effectiveness of different durations (7, 10 or 14 days) of a variety of regimens for eradicating H. pylori was assessed to assess the relative risk and number needed to treat (NNT)/number needed to harm (NNTH) according to duration of therapy. Expand

TLDR
In both the overall and age-stratifi ed analyses, the eosinophil counts were higher in African Americans, though this was not statistically significant, and it is agreed that a multi-center collaboration evaluating characteristics of EoE patients of diff erent racial backgrounds would be a worthy goal.

It was found that African Americans were diagnosed at a younger age compared with Caucasians, and dysphagia was more commonly reported among Caucasians than African Americans, similar to Gill et al. (1). Expand
The prevalence and incidence of Helicobacter pylori-associated peptic ulcer disease and upper gastrointestinal bleeding throughout the world.
