How it works
Journal Best Paper Awardee 2021 – Nicolas Richard
The current Journal Best Paper Awardee is Nicolas Richard, the first author of the winning article: The effectiveness of rotating versus single course antibiotics for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
Nicolas Richard is a resident in the Department of Gastroenterology at Rouen University Hospital and is also doing his MS in Biology at the University of Rouen, France.
His paper showed that the treatment of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth rotating antibiotics was more effective than treatment using a single course of antibiotics. A single course regimen led to increased remission rates and improved quality of life and in particular symptoms of bloating. The UEG Journal Editors chose this paper because it addresses an important question in a condition with limited guidelines and evidence-based strategies. The results from this paper have the potential to change clinical practice in the near future.
