I think you should not take any PPI for at least 2 weeks before endoscopy. ...

Re: After hylori

I see. from your description, I think your specialist is doing the right thing. Unfortunately you'll have to continue on Ranitidine until you are better. There is one more PPI that you can try, Rabeprazole. It is metabolised differently compare to other PPI that you mentioned. perhaps you can give t...

Re: Where Can I get gene expression library

Re: Diagnosing from a biopsy

yea, the biology of H. pylori was not easy. Took Prof. Marshall's team a year to figure out how to culture H. pylori. Now that there is a cure, doctors pay less attention to it. But the good one would know what's best to kill it.

Thanks shidOx sharing the information.

Yes, if your first triple therapy doesnt work, please try a second one with different antibiotics.

Tell your doctor to give you more PPI as Prof. Marshall says it increase cure rate.
