There is one clinical trial.
The goal of this trial is to compare the non-inferiority efficacy and safety of two different treatment schemes: pantoprazole 80 mg + levofloxacin 500 mg + azithromycin 500 mg once daily (PLA, test) vs. clarithromycin 500 mg + lansoprazole 30 mg + amoxicillin 1 g twice daily (CLA, reference), each during 10 days, over Helicobacter Pylori (HP) eradication. Both schemes will be tested in treatment-naive patients, with biopsy-based diagnosis for HP infection. One month after finishing each treatment, C13-urea breath testing will be required to verify HP eradication. Biopsies will also be taken to identify Clarithromycin-resistance mutations in HP strains by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).
The probe for H. pylori identification (Hpy 1) (5'CACACCTGACTGACTATCCCG-3') will be labeled with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) that provides a green signal, and the probes that detect the three most prevalent clarithromycin-resistance mutations (ClaR1 (A2143G) 5'CGGGGTCTTCCCGTCTt-3', ClaR2 (A2144G) 5'CGGGGCTCTCCGTCTT-3', and ClaR3 (A21443C) 5-CGGGGTCTTGCCGTCTT-3') will be labeled with red fluorochrome (Cy3). --- A2143G --- --- A2144G --- --- A21443C ---
