Abstract
ABSTRACT Triple-agent therapy with lansoprazole (15 mg/kg)-clarithromycin (50 mg/kg)-amoxicillin (50 mg/kg) twice daily for 7 days fully cleared “ Candidatus Helicobacter heilmannii” from infected mouse stomachs. Moreover, gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma-like lesions in the stomach nearly disappeared in the treated mice 4 months after the therapy.
