Answer

Answer

Second-line therapy [3, 40] should avoid repeating first-line regimens that were already used, and should incorporate at least one different antibiotic. Bismuth-based therapy or levofloxacin-containing triple therapy [40] can be used (same regimens as above, if not used previously).
