The epidemiology is then defined by means of the most scientific as­ sociations, that are gastritis and dyspepsia, peptic ulcers, can­ cers and lymphoma. This clearly ends up in dialogue of the laboratory points of H. pylori, specially the microbiology, in­ cluding crucial info on antibiotic resistance styles. subsequent, virulence and pathogenicity of H. pylori are defined as outlined in experiences utilizing animal versions, then via dialogue of the metabolism of the organism. eventually, the interplay of the bac­ terium with the host immune platforms is handled, together with the results of those findings as they relate to the advance of destiny vaccines.

Kalantar et al. domized to triple therapy, with an eradication rate of 96% (n = 29), or placebo (n = 24). No significant difference in symptom improvement was found over the 6month follow-up (VEDHUYZEN VAN ZANTEN et al. 1995). SCHUTZE et al. (1996) observed symptom improvement after double therapy with c1arithromycin and ranitidine, but this was independent of H. pylori status with return of symptoms in both infected and eradicated groups at I-one year follow-up. In contrast, in another randomized H2 blocker controlled study from Hong Kong, patients who had H.

7%, respectively. As a result of this study BELL and POWELL (1996) suggested that in "Westernized" countries, most so-called reinfections in adults are due to late recrudescence of a suppressed infection rather than a true reinfection and that if an eradication therapy has an efficacy of greater than 85% the true reinfection rate is very low. To date there have been a limited number of studies examining reinfection rates in developing countries. In Southeast Asia, GOH et al. (\ 996) examined the reinfection rate over a 2-year period in 38 duodenal ulcer patients in whom H.

Pylori and resolution of the associated inflammation. A number of therapeutic trials now published or presented in preliminary form have tried to test the hypothesis that cure of H. pylori relieves symptoms. It has been surprisingly difficult to test this hypothesis. TALLEY (l994a) analysed 16 published trials; 8 reported that benefit was derived from H. pylori treatment, and 8 failed to detect a statistically significant benefit, but there were limitations in all of these studies. Early studies utilising bismuth compounds may have suffered from observer bias, since these compounds cause blackening of the stools and tongue; use of placebo compounds which blacken the stool may be useful in future trials (YATES et al.
