There is considerable confusion over the management of Helicobacter pylori infection, particularly among primary care physicians, and numerous European countries lack national guidelines in this rapidly growing area of medicine. The European Helicobacter Pylori Study Group therefore organised a meeting in Maastricht of H pylori experts, primary care physicians and representatives of National Societies of Gastroenterology from Europe to establish consensus guidelines on the management of H… Expand
Who should be treated for Helicobacter pylori infection? A review of consensus conferences and guidelines.
The publication of the National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference guidelines on management of Helicobacter pylori infection in 1994 set a precedence. At present, at least eightExpand
Current concepts in the management of Helicobacter pylori infection: the Maastricht III Consensus Report
TLDR
H pylori eradication is less effective than proton pump inhibitor (PPI) treatment in preventing ulcer recurrence in long term NSAID users and a test and treat strategy using a non-invasive test is recommended in adult patients with persistent dyspepsia under the age of 45. Expand
The management of H pylori infection
TLDR
Though the need for eradication in peptic ulcer disease is agreed, there is also evidence for eradicating H pylori in patients with advanced and progressively worsening forms of gastritis such as intestinal metaplasia, glandular atrophy, and erosive or hypertrophic forms of Gastritis, and after resection for early gastric cancer. Expand
[Croatian guidelines for diagnostics and treatments of Helicobacter pylori infection].
TLDR
The working expert group of gastroenterologists was formed and gathered on Consesus Conference in December 2012 in Zagreb, to arrive to current guidelines for the clinical management of Helicobacter pylori infection in Croatia. Expand
The management of Helicobacter pylori infection in primary care Guidelines from the ESPCG
TLDR
This project developed evidence-based guidelines that were relevant and valid for general practitioners (GPs) across all of Europe and was supported by access to national prevalence data, key research literature and on-line databases. Expand
Protocol of the European Registry on the management of Helicobacter pylori infection (Hp‐EuReg)
TLDR
The high costs that this infection carries both socially and to the health system require the continuous and systematic assessment of the diagnostic and treatment strategies, as well as the accessibility to diagnostic methods and most efficient drugs. Expand
Management of Helicobacter pylori infection — a review of the available regional and national guidelines
TLDR
The discovery of Helicobacter pylori in 19821 and the recognition of its causal relationship with peptic ulcer disease has revolutionized clinical approach to this condition and the relevance of the infection in other common dyspeptic conditions has also been investigated. Expand
Management of Helicobacter pylori infection—the Maastricht IV/ Florence Consensus Report
TLDR
In this 4th edition of the Maastricht consensus report aspects related to the clinical role of H pylori were looked at again in 2010, with recommendations to guide doctors involved in the management of this infection associated with various clinical conditions. Expand
Helicobacter pylori-related disease: guidelines for testing and treatment.
TLDR
Practical guidelines for the treatment of patients with suspected and documented Helicobacter pylori-related gastroduodenal diseases are developed to develop practical guidelines in patients with active ulcers, a history of ulcer disease or with persistent symptoms. Expand
A proposal for future Helicobacter pylori eradication guidelines
TLDR
This work proposes a global ‘search-and-treat’ paradigm for future H. pylori eradication guidelines that targets dyspeptic populations and recommends non-invasive testing and eradication for all such patients without alarm symptoms at their first presentation. Expand

The economic and quality-of-life benefits of Helicobacter pylori eradication in chronic duodenal ulcer disease--a community-based study.
TLDR
A policy of H pylori eradication in chronic duodenal ulcer disease reduces the use of long-term acid-suppression therapy in general practice and has important financial implications as well as offering considerable symptomatic benefits to the patients and improving their quality of life. Expand
Alternative Management Strategies for Patients with Suspected Peptic Ulcer Disease
TLDR
Decision analysis was used to estimate the clinical and economic effects of two immediate endoscopy and three initially noninvasive diagnostic and treatment strategies for patients with symptoms suggestive of peptic ulcer disease and the effects of various diagnostic and therapeutic medical interventions. Expand
Long-term consequences of Helicobacter pylori eradication: clinical aspects.
TLDR
It is argued that H. pylori infection in young patients with dyspepsia should be treated, although this issue will remain controversial until well-designed, placebo-controlled studies establish the real benefits of eradication therapy in the long-term treatment of this disease. Expand
Eradication of Helicobacter pylori reduces the possibility of rebleeding in peptic ulcer disease.
TLDR
Whether eradication of H. pylori has any impact on the complications of ulcers, such as bleeding, is examined in patients hospitalized for duodenal ulcer bleeding and patients in whom eradication had failed. Expand
Role of Helicobacter pylori eradication in the prevention of peptic ulcer bleeding relapse.
TLDR
It is concluded that H. pylori eradication markedly changes the natural history in patients with complicated duodenal and gastric ulcer disease and treatment aimed at bacterial eradication should be considered in all patients with conservatively managed bleeding from H.pylori-positive ulcers. Expand
Relationship between Helicobacter pylori eradication and reduced duodenal and gastric ulcer recurrence: a review.
TLDR
The current literature strongly suggests that H. pylori eradication 4 weeks after therapy should be used as the primary efficacy end point for reduced gastric and duodenal ulcer recurrence for the purpose of clinical trial design. Expand
Low dose, short-term triple therapy for cure of Helicobacter pylori infection and healing of peptic ulcers.
TLDR
Triple therapy as suggested by Bazzoli with omeprazole, clarythromycin, and tinidazole is indeed highly effective for both cure of H. pylori infection and for healing of peptic ulcers, is easy to perform, is cheap, and is without clinically significant side effects, even in a larger population. Expand
[Short-term triple therapy with pantoprazole, clarithromycin and metronidazole in eradication of Helicobacter pylori].
TLDR
In a prospective study, thirty consecutive patients presenting with either H.pylori positive (histology and/or culture) ulcer disease or functional dyspepsia were treated over one week with pantoprazole, clarithromycin and metronidazole to eradicate H. pylori infection. Expand
Screening dyspepsia by serology to Helicobacter pylori
TLDR
A policy of screening young dyspeptic patients for H pylori by serology is more sensitive than symptom-based screening strategies, and may have an important role in reducing endoscopy workload. Expand
A critique of therapeutic trials in Helicobacter pylori-positive functional dyspepsia.
TLDR
There is a pressing need for well-designed trials in H. pylori-positive dyspepsia, and practical suggestions are provided based on a review of the published literature. Expand
