primary clarithromycin resistance in italy assessed on helicobacter pylori dna sequences by taqman real-time polymerase chain reaction.helicobacter pylori clarithromycin resistance is increasing worldwide and different mutations are involved in its mechanisms. recently, molecular methods have been proposed to assess these mutations.200616423002
eradication rates in italian subjects heterogeneously managed for helicobacter pylori infection. time to abandon empiric treatments in southern europe.h. pylori eradication is strongly affected by various factors, including the ongoing antibiotic resistance. we describe a "real life" scenario in patients managed for h. pylori-related conditions, living in a southern italian region (apulia), an area with clarithromycin resistance >15%.201728617882
