Efficacy of reduced-dose regimen of a capsule containing bismuth subcitrate, metronidazole, and tetracycline given with amoxicillin and esomeprazole in the treatment of Helicobacter Pylori infection.


ABSTRACT: It is well known that triple therapy for Helicobacter pylori is losing efficacy worldwide. A regimen containing proton pump inhibitor and multiple-dose capsules of bismuth, metronidazole, and tetracycline has proven efficacy. In addition, a literature review on dosage of previous regimens shows that half-dose clarithromycin-based regimens are equally effective to full-dose regimens. However, the applicability of dose reduction to bismuth-based therapy is unknown. This communication shows that a reduced-dose bismuth-based regimen fails to achieve acceptable eradication rates.
