The article presents a study on the role of Helicobacter pylori eradication in the prevention of gastric cancer. The study involves subjects aged 35 to 64 years from the Shandong Province in China, in which they were given a baseline endoscopy and randomized to receive omerprazole and amoxicillin. The study shows that Helicobacter pylori eradication therapy resulted in a significant decrease in the combined end point of severe chronic atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia and dysplasia.
