Significant progress has been achieved in diagnosis and treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection, which is reflected in the new fifth edition of the Maastricht Consensus Report. In preparation for the discussion of the Maastricht V/Florence Consensus, new data on H. pylori were examined by 43 experts from 24 countries in five separate sections: 1) Main and Accompanying Symptomatology (Symptoms/relationships); 2) Diagnosis; 3) Treatment; 4) Prevention/protection of Public Health; 5) H. pylori and gastric microbiota. The results of the individual sections were presented for a final vote, which included all participants. Recommendations are formulated on the basis of the best evidence available and relevance in the treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection in various clinical situations.
