  Purpose
The goal of the study is to compare the effectiveness of empirical Helicobacter pylori treatment compared with treatment depending on diagnostic tests for Helicobacter pylori in patients with Upper gastrointestinal bleeding due to peptic ulcer. Main hypothesis is that empirical treatment will reduce the number of patients lost to follow-up thus improving the cure rates of Hp infection.

Condition Intervention Phase
Peptic Ulcer Hemorrhage Other: Empirical Hp eradication Other: Eradication treatment guided by a positive test Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
