Between the 19th and the 20th century, the primary task had been the definition of the diagnostic criteria in order to differentiate the new entity from intestinal tuberculosis.

The most commonly used regimens fail to eradicate Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection in 5–10% of patients.

All subjects were treated with rifabutin 150 mg, ...
