          Abstract

          Infection with Helicobacter pylori is a risk factor for the development of gastric cancer. However, it is not known whether eradication therapy can prevent the development of gastric cancer in persons in whom the cancer is not yet established. In the present study, we investigated whether the eradication of H. pylori in patients with peptic ulcer disease reduces the likelihood of their developing gastric cancer.
