Backgrounds/Aims: CYP2C19 polymorphism has an important role in the metabolism of proton pump inhibitors. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of CYP2C19 genotype on the eradication rate of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) by a pantoprazole based triple therapy. Methods: A total of 251 patients infected with H. pylori were treated with 40 mg of pantoprazole, 500 mg of clarithromycin and 1,000 mg of amoxicillin twice daily for 7 or 10 days. The CYP2C19 genotype was determined with the polymerase chain reaction- restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis. Results: Eradication rates for H. pylori were 84.8%, 80.5% and 84.1% in the homozygous extensive, heterozygous extensive and poor metabolizer groups, respectively. However, CYP2C19 genotypes would be an important factor for treatment failure when the patients were infected with clarithromycin-resistant strains of H. pylori. Female, smoking, gastritis and clarithromycin-resistance were identified as risk factors for treatment failure (p<0.05). Multiple logistic regression analysis revealed endoscopic diagnosis as a significant independent risk factor for treatment failure. Conclusions: The eradication rates of H. pylori by pantoprazole based triple therapy were not significantly different among the CYP2C19 genotypes except in patients infected with clarithromycin-resistant strains.
