The recent study by Greenberg and Cello1 reached negative conclusions regarding the opportunity to eradicate Helicobacter pylori in patients with nonulcer dyspepsia. The authors found that, at 1 year, the change in dyspeptic symptoms was the same in the group receiving an eradicating treatment as in the placebo group. Furthermore, patients with persistent H pylori infection showed a greater, but not significant, improvement in symptoms than those with successful eradication during the follow-up.
