Clinical Question:
Does quadruple therapy (QT) result in superior eradication rates of H. pylori over traditional triple therapy (TT)?

Bottom-line:
The optimal treatment regimen for H. pylori remains controversial^ with differences in number and type of drugs^ dosing^ and length of treatment. Until local resistance patterns are identified and deemed a concern^ there is not overwhelming evidence to change current prescribing patterns in primary care.
