Background: Various ways of treating H.pylori infection are reported, such as triple-therapy and quadruple therapy for two weeks. Some side effects have been seen during these treatments, besides Helicobacter pylori becoming resistant to these antibiotics easily. According to some studies, there is a relationship between metformin and reduction in Helicobacter pylori infection. Thus, in this study, we determine the effects of metformin on Helicobacter pylori infection.
Methods: We performed this assessment in a randomized, case-controlled way in the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infected outpatients and inpatients. In both groups (case group and control group), patients took two tablets for a two-week period. In the case group, the patients were given two metformin tablets (each containing 500mg of metformin (extended release) and in the control group, they were given two placebo tablets (each containing 500mg of white flour). We took h.pylori Ag stool test and rapid urease test to confirm the presence of Helicobacter pylori infection.
Results: In this study, at first all the patients had positive h.pylori Ag stool test or positive rapid urease test. At the end of this study, the results of h.pylori Ag stool*- test presented that Helicobacter pylori infection was negative in 82.7% of the case group patients and 76% of control group patients which illustrates suppression of Helicobacter pylori infection. However, comparing to the control group (P=0.36), this difference was not statistically remarkable.
Conclusion: According to these findings, it is stated that having metformin along with prescribed antibiotics can help decrease Helicobacter pylori infection.
