Helicobacter pylori clarithromycin resistance detected by Etest and TaqMan real-time polymerase chain reaction: a comparative study.


The aim of the work was to compare H. pylori clarithromycin-resistance according two methods. Etest was performed on H. pylori isolated from gastric biopsy samples. TaqMan Real-Time-PCR (RT-PCR) was performed on paraffin-embedded gastric biopsy samples of the same patients. Forty-seven out of 88 strains were resistant to clarithromycin by Etest, whereas RT… (More)
