Metadata[+] Show full item record
Fourteen-day triple therapy with a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) plus clarithromycin and either amoxicillin or metronidazole is superior to 7-day therapy in eradicating Heliobacter pylori (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, highquality meta-analysis). Seven-day triple therapy with a PPI or ranitidine bismuth citrate plus clarithromycin and either amoxicillin or metronidazole is also effective (SOR: A, high-quality systematic review). Three-day quadruple therapy with a combination of PPI, clarithromycin, bismuth subcitrate, and metronidazole or a combination of PPI, clarithromycin, amoxicillin, and metronidazole also appears to be effective (SOR: B, unblinded randomized controlled trial).
