Session Description

H. pylori management has become increasingly challenging due to widespread antimicrobial resistance worldwide. This session will provide invaluable and practical information to help clinicians evaluate resistance in their population of interest, and to develop strategies to optimize treatment success. As an exciting introduction, Barry J. Marshall, MD, MB BS W.Aust., FRACP, FRS, FAA, will review how H. pylori was first cultured in 1982 and how the initial findings bumped up inconveniently against the existing medical dogma during his lecture, “The Discovery Of H. Pylori — Scientific Resistance and How We Overcame It.”

Moderated by Steven F. Moss, MD, and David A. Peura, MD, the following additional topics will be covered:
