Detection of point mutations in the gyrA gene of Helicobacter pylori isolates in Slovenia.

Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIMS The prevalence of antibiotic-resistant H. pylori clinical isolates is a growing concern. So far, fluoroquinolones have not been used to treat H. pylori on a large scale, but recent studies have reported a high rate of quinolones-resistance in H. pylori too. The aim of our study was to asses the mechanism of resistance to ciprofloxacin in H… (More)
