Duodenal Ulcer

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Observational Study to Evaluate Helicobacter Pylori Eradication at the End of Routine Triple Eradication Therapy With Duodenal Ulcer Relapses Control.

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Eradication rate of H. pylori at the end routine triple eradication therapy [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Recurrence rate of duodenal ulcer (in patients with ulcer defects in inclusion stage) [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequency of duodenal ulcer relapses [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Frequency of duodenal ulcer relapses based on gastroscopy data and recurrence rate of H.Pylori infection based on breath test data after 52 weeks from the start of the therapy.
