PERSISTENT MISCONCEPTIONS OF MODERN GASTROENTEROLOGY

The author critically evaluates the role of Helicobacter pylori in the development of chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer and gastric cancer and provides arguments against the so called functional gastrointestinal disorders (functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome) without underlying histological changes. It is suggested that the published consensus statements may contradict the basic principles of the evidence-based medicine.
