MORCILLO MUNOZ, Jorge; OTERO REGINO, William  and  GOMEZ ZULETA, Martín. How can Helicobacter pylori eradication therapies be improved?. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.4, pp.437-447. ISSN 0120-9957.

Since the discovery of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), eradication has been a constant challenge, and an ideal treatment is not yet available. The increasing resistance of the microorganism to the most frequently used antibiotics has most impacted the effectiveness of the various schemes. The objectives of this work are to provide a general review of H. pylori infections and the nomenclature of the various treatments, discuss the basic issues and components of eradication therapies together with the general characteristics of antibiotics, and finally to recommend treatments based on in the most important recent publications.
