|Bacterial Infection Due to Helicobacter Pylori (H. Pylori)||Drug: 10RAC+acetylcystein Drug: 10RAC+metronidazole||Phase 4|
Background: Antimicrobial resistance has decreased the eradication rates of common used triple therapy for Helicobacter pylori infection (less than 80%). Such treatment for patient previously with treatment failure, the retreatment eradication rate is less then 50%. Some studies showed the Helicobacter pylori form biofilm to prevent entry of antibiotics, and the N-acetylcystein is helpful to dissolve the biofilm.
Objective: To determine the eradication rate of the common used triple therapy after adding N-acetylcystein for second line treatment for adults infected with Helicobacter pylori in Eastern Taiwan.
Design: Randomized, open-label, prospective controlled trial.
Patients: who are previously failed the primary treatment for eradication and still infected by Helicobacter pylori.
Measurements: 13C-urea breath test, upper endoscopy, histologic evaluation, rapid urease test, bacterial culture, assessment of antibiotic resistance and CYP2C19 genotype of host.
Intervention: patients with Helicobacter pylori eradication treatment failure are recruited and randomly assigned to receive one of the following therapeutic schemes: 1) study group: rabeprazole 20mg bid + amoxicillin 1g bid + clarithromycin 0.5g bid + N-acetylcystein 0.6g bid for 10 days; 2) control group: rabeprazole 20mg bid + amoxicillin 1g bid + clarithromycin 0.5g bid + metronidazole 0.5g bid for 10 days. Repeat upper endoscopy for histologic evaluation, rapid urease test or 13C-urea breath test after 4 week of treatment to assess the treatment result. The influence on the hybrid therapies of antibiotic resistance of Helicobacter pylori and CYP2C19 genotype of host were determined.
Expected results: The new second line treatment for eradication of Helicobacter pylori is effective, and to determine the relation of antibiotic resistance of Helicobacter pylori and CYP2C19 genotype of host to the treatment result.
