Synopsis: 
Quadruple treatment has been recommended by Maastrich-IV Consensus for Helicobacter pylori eradication in regions with high clarithromycine resistance rate. However, patients with duodenal ulcer are special populations. Our study showed unsatisfactory eradication success of quadruple treatment in this group.

ABSTRACT

Background: Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is an important cause of duodenal ulcer (DU) and eradication this infection can prevent complication related to DU and recurrence of the DU. Quadruple therapy (QT) is one of the recommended treatment regimen for the H. pylori eradication. But there has not been enough data for impact of the QT on eradication success of the H. pylori in patients with DU. We aimed to investigate success of QT in H. pylori positive patients with DU.
