While this blog has reviewed expert recommendations for treatment, this article provides more insight into salvage treatments.  Table 1 reviews standard quadruple and triple regimens. Table 2 (below) provides dosing in adults for salvage therapy.

  1. Jay – thanks for the comprehensive useful information – timely as well! A couple of additional points; 1) the majority of the therapies listed in this APT article have not be evaluated in pediatric populations. Thus, dosing should be adapted to the child and on a mg/kg basis. 2) the NASPGHAN-ESPGHAN updated and revised clinical practice guidelines will be published in the next few months – a draft is about to circulated to membership for review. Key in these new guidelines will be considerations of resistance in choosing the antimicrobial therapy regimen – with Clarithromycin resistance having the most significant negative impact on outcome.
