In study of ours in which we analyzed gastric secretion, stomach emptying, gastrin secretion quantitatively, and histological assessment of gastric antrum mucosa in patients with different ulcer locations, definite differences between prepyloric gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer were seen [3]. Patients with prepyloric ulcer had less acid secretion, slower emptying time, but higher gastrin secretion. The histological analysis of antral mucosa, also showed a high proportion of patients to have changes such as chronic atrophic gastritis and intestinal metaplasia (Table 5).

De Giacomo et al. ness; absence of IgG or IgA seropositivity gave 95% negative predictiveness [3]. Of 19 patients 17 were seropositive for IgG and/or IgA. 7 m 2 body surface per day in three or four divided doses for 4 weeks). Such treatment resulted in eradication of the infection and significant improvement of gastritis in up to 70% of children treated [2]. H. pylori eradication was evaluated by follow-up endoscopy and antral biopsy at least 1 month after discontinuating treatment (mean 6 months for all patients).

Observed a reduction in H. pylori density 3-12 months after PGV [27]. The objective of the present prospective study was to investigate the influence of PGV with and without simultaneous perioperative single-shot antibiotics on H. pylori infection, the degree of infection, and the rate of gastric metaplasia in the duodenum. Patients and Methods Twenty-four patients (21 men, 3 women; mean age 43 years, range 21-74 years) with chronic duodenal ulcer were entered in the prospective study.
