It is accepted that eradication of Helicobacter pylori leads to healing of chronic active gastritis facilitates ulcer healing and prevents ulcer recurrence in duodenal ulcer (DU) patients. However, it is not entirely known whether the eradication of the bacteria normalizes gastric acid secretion and abolishes dyspeptic symptoms after ulcer healing. This study was aimed to evaluate the intragastric acidity and dyspeptic complaints before, and 3 months after, eradication in 18 endoscopically… CONTINUE READING
