H. bye-lori.

Both family history and H. pylori infection impact risk of gastric cancer, but can prevention of the latter attenuate risk with the former? It’s really the only question to ask until we find a way to prevent unfortunate family histories. Dr. Choi is at it again with another large randomized trial demonstrating eradication of H. pylori with just one week of antibiotics more than halves the rate of subsequent gastric cancer, this time specifically among those who report gastric cancer in a first-degree relative. | Choi, N Eng J Med 2020
