Abstract

VALLEJOS M, Cristián; CERDA A, Oscar; VALENZUELA V, Manuel  and  TOLEDO A, Héctor. Antimicrobial resistance of Helicobacter pylori: Clinical and molecular aspects. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2003, vol.131, n.11, pp.1313-1320. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872003001100014.

Helicobacter pylori is a relevant pathogen for gastroduodenal diseases in human beings. Although its eradication often improves gastroduodenal diseases, H pylori is acquiring an elevated rate of resistance to various antimicrobials, such as metronidazole, clarithromycin, tetracycline and amoxicillin. Multi-drug resistance is a major problem to select the appropriate treatment of infectious diseases. To improve our understanding on the com-plexity of the problem, in this article we review the resistance mechanisms and give an update on H pylori antimicrobial resistance (Rev Méd Chile 2003; 131: 1313-20)
