Should H pylori Eradication Therapy be Used to Reverse IM

One of the best analyses of the issue of whether atrophy and IM regress with H. pylori eradication is given in an editorial by Dixon (2001). The H. pylori eradication data is a bit more convincing for some reversal of gland atrophy than for IM. At present there is no indication to employ H. pylori eradication as a rationale for reversing atrophic gastritis and/or IM of the stomach. However, if samples have been taken and H. pylori is present, then I will treat with H. pylori eradication in general terms. Others might advocate not taking gastric biopsy samples at all for H. pylori (don't ask, don't tell) so that the issue does not arise. There is a separate chapter on H. pylori (see Chapter 23, "Helicobacter Pylori and Gastroduodenal Disease").
