Abstract

Deciding upon a treatment regimen for management of Helicobacter pylori infection is an important concern which has been studied all around the world. Most studies focus particularly on the eradication rate of the regime by itself, however it seems that other factors such as the side effect of drugs or their cost can moreover affect the physician's decision for prescribing a suitable combination of drugs for a specific patient. A parent has the right in choosing between the different treatment options for her/his child. In order to evaluate and assess the best known alternative according to multi-criteria and considering the decision maker's preferences, a multi-criteria decision making model entitled "Analytical Hierarchical Process" (AHP) is employed. By this approach multi-criteria decision making analysis can be adapted to include both qualitative and quantitative criteria and their effects on selection of a proper regimen.

依據幽門螺桿菌感染的治療方案,決定處理方法,是世界各地的一個重要研究題目。大多數研究的重點,聚焦於根除率,但似乎其他因素,如藥物的副作用或他們的成本,可能更會影響醫生的決定,為一個特定的患者訂定一個合適的藥物組合。家長有權為他/她的孩子選擇不同的治療方案。為了衡量和評估最知名的替代治療方法,根據多準則和考慮決策者的偏好,一項多準則決策模型題為「層次分析法」(AHP)被建立了。通過這種方法,多準則決策分析適用於定性和定量的標準和他們對選擇適當的治療方案的影響。
