Abstract
Discussion continues on the role of Helicobacter pylori. The following deba te provides a venue to examine 2 sides of this complicated issue. Dr. Vakil presents evidence that the eradication of H pylori will improve patients' health, while Dr. Co introduces evidence that suggests the presence of H py lori can be beneficial in particular cases. These clinicians also discuss t he issue of whether to test and treat for H pylori and the role of H pylori in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease.
