Eradication of Helicobacter pylori in Children in Vietnam in Relation to Antibiotic Resistance
Nguyen TVH et al. – Helicobacter pylori clarithromycin resistance was unexpectedly high in young children in Vietnam. Clarithromycin resistance was an important cause for eradication treatment failure. Twice–daily administration and exact antibiotic dosing resulted in more eradicated infections when the strains were antibiotic resistant, which has implications for the study design in pediatric H. pylori eradication trials.
