Esomeprazole Treatment for Patients With Lymphocytic Gastritis
Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Multicenter Trial on the Efficacy of Esomeprazole Treatment for Patients With Lymphocytic Gastritis
The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment with esomeprazole alone is able to heal patients with lymphocytic gastritis
Recently, a placebo controlled trial of our group has shown that H. pylori eradication therapy consisting of omeprazole 20 mg bid, clarithromycin 500 mg bid, amoxicillin 1000 mg bid for seven days leads to a complete long-lasting resolution of lymphocytic gastritis in 96 % of patients. However, after 3 months we also found a healing rate of 50 % in patients who received omeprazole 20 mg bid and placebo antibiotics for seven days suggesting spontaneous remission or a potential PPI effect. Thus, we speculate that PPI therapy may have led to elimination of H. pylori and subsequently healing of lymphocytic gastritis in those patients with potentially minimal H. pylori colonization at baseline. For this reason we investigate whether a PPI treatment alone is able to heal patients with lymphocytic gastritis.
