Eradication of Helicobacter pylori infection in Mexico is of great importance due to the elevated seroprevalence, however, there is yet very little information about antibiotic resistance rates in H. pylori isolates in our country. We analyzed susceptibility to three antimicrobials used in therapy of 49 H. pylori strains isolated from patients with active chronic gastritis, active chronic gastritis with lymphoid follicles, intestinal metaplasia and gastric cancer. All isolated strains were… CONTINUE READING
