  Background: Nowadays, helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) antibiotic resistance is increasing.

  Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of adding garlic extract to the anti-helicobacter pylori treatment .

  Methods: This clinical trial was conducted in 71 patients with peptic ulcer referred to the Booali Sina hospital in Qazvin during 2012.
