Abstract

This represents an overview of the main data published over the last year on the therapy of Helicobacter pylori. The problem of increasing failure of H. pylori eradication has been the main focus, with increasing resistance and poor patient compliance being the main culprits. Simple regimens are necessary to improve patient compliance. New antibiotics and novel agents are appraised with mixed results.
