H pylori Eradication

A recent meta-analysis reported that eradicating H. pylori offers a net therapeutic gain of about 9% beyond placebo (Moayyedi et al, 2000). A second meta-analysis did not find significant improvement in symptoms following eradication (Laine et al, 2001). The disparate results stem from the numbers of trials included. Unfortunately, there do not appear to be any clinical predictors of response to H. pylori eradication. The decision to test patients with nonulcer dyspepsia for H. pylori infection remains somewhat controversial. If a patient is found to be infected, treatment should be offered but the likelihood of clinical improvement is small.
