Background/Aims: Effective eradication therapy of Helicobacter pylori (Hp) in non-follicular type gastritis is commonly demonstrated by many studies. In contrast, some other studies show that the eradication of Hp is low in follicular type gastritis. However, the subject concerning the comparison of the results of triple-drug Hp eradication treatment between follicular and nonfollicular type gastritis is still unclear because of the paucity of studies. The aim of this study was to compare the results of Hp eradication therapy between follicular and non-follicular type gastritis.
