Abstract

Objectives: The Maastricht III Consensus agreed that effective treatment for Helicobacter pylori (HP) should achieve an intention-to-treat (ITT) eradication rate above 80%, which is still lacking in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). This pilot study was designed to confirm the efficacy of a 14-day sequential treatment regimen in patients with type 2 DM.
