Abstract: The immunohistochemical technique is more accurate than classical methods in identifying H. pylori after specific therapy. This method should, therefore, be used in all studies that aim to achieve eradication. Whether the H. pylori identified at immunohistochemistry is able to reactivate and induce recrudescence of infection remains to be clarified.
