Aspirin inhibits the growth of Helicobacter pylori and enhances its susceptibility to antimicrobial agents
- Antagonistic and synergistic interaction between Helicobacter pylori (Hp) and conventional nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and Coxibs during healing of preexisting gastric ulcers. Brzozowski, T.; Konturek, P.C.; Kwiecien, S.; Pajdo, R.; Sliwowski, Z.; Drozdowicz, D.; Bielanski, W.; Ptak, A.; Konturek, S.J.; Hahn, E.G. // Gut;Sep2002 Supplement 2, Vol. 51, pA59
