The use of PPI is associated with infections to Salmonella (Association Between Recent Use of Proton Pump Inhibitors and Nontyphoid Salmonellosis: A Nested Case-Control Study, Clin Infect Dis. 2014 Dec 1; 59(11): 1554–1558.Published online 2014 Aug 4. doi: [10.1093/cid/ciu628]) and with Campylobacter (Incidence of Campylobacter and Salmonella Infections Following First Prescription for PPI: A Cohort Study Using Routine Data – The American Journal of Gastroenterology, Published: 16 April 2013).
In your study you looked at infections by C. diff only and I’d like to know your rationale to do that.
