Abstract

A low rate of resistance (0.24%) to rifabutin was noted in Helicobacter pylori strains isolated from 414 Japanese patients. The only rifabutin-resistant strain detected showed a point mutation in the rpoB gene and was isolated from a patient with a history of rifampin treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis.
