New scientific evidence on efficacy of bismuth

Whereas amoxicillin, clarithromycin and an acid pump blocker make up the most widely used treatment, people who are allergic to penicillin, or who have failed treatment, require other antibiotics. Bismuth compounds (Pepto-Bismol or De-Nol) with can be used in various combinations with other antibiotics such as tetracycline, metronidazole, furazolidone, ciprofloxacin etc., especially when other therapy fails.

New scientific evidence on efficacy of bismuth

There is a highly interesting article about a research confirming efficacy of bismuth in killing drug-resistant bacteria. This seems to explain the high-success rate of bismuth-based H.Pylori therapies. The scientists believe that bismuth could be used concomittently with antibiotics not only for H.Pylori eradication but also for treating other bacterial infections.
