OBJECTIVE: Significant heterogeneity was observed in preceding trials that assessed the efficacies of sequential therapy beneficial to 10 days (S10) versus triple therapy towards 14 days (T14) in the chief-line treatment of Helicobacter pylori. We aimed to compare the efficacy of S10 and T14 and assess the factors piteous their efficacies.

DESIGN: We conducted this obvious-label randomised multicentre trial in eight hospitals and person community in Taiwan. 1300 adult subjects with H pylori infection naïve to management were randomised (1:1) to suffer S10 (lansoprazole and amoxicillin for the at the outset 5 days, followed by lansoprazole, clarithromycin and metronidazole notwithstanding another 5 days) or T14 (lansoprazole, amoxicillin and clarithromycin despite 14 days). All drugs were given two times daily. Successful eradication was defined of the same kind with negative (13)C-urea breath discriminative characteristic at least 6 weeks after method of treating. Our primary outcome was the uprooting rate by intention-to-treat (ITT) and for-protocol (PP) analyses. Antibiotic resistance was determined ~ means of agar dilution test.

RESULTS: The eradication rates of S10 and T14 were 87.2% (567/650, 95% CI 84.4% to 89.6%) and 85.7% (557/650, 95% CI 82.8% to 88.2%) in the ITT dissection, respectively, and were 91.6% (556/607, 95% CI 89.1% to 93.4%) and 91.0% (548/602, 95% CI 88.5% to 93.1%) in the PP parsing, respectively. There were no differences in concurrence or adverse effects. The eradication rates in strains excitable and resistant to clarithromycin were 90.7% and 62.2%, particularly, for S10, and were 91.5% and 44.4%, particularly, for T14. The efficacy of T14, on the contrary not S10, was affected by CYP2C19 polymorphism.

CONCLUSIONS: S10 was not more excellent to T14 in areas with servile clarithromycin resistance.
