TO THE EDITOR: Antimicrobial resistance represents the major cause of treatment failure in the eradication of Helicobacter pylori(H. pylori) infection. We found that therapy based on antimicrobial-susceptibility testing was associated with a higher eradication rate and a significantly lower treatment failure rate compared with that obtained without pretreatment antimicrobial-susceptibility testing in a population of 80 consecutiveH. pylori-infected dyspeptic patients. We postulate that a… CONTINUE READING
