(ii) extra-oesophageal manifestations of paediatric gastro-oesophageal reflux disease;

(iii) abdominal pain perceived as a common feature of Helicobacter pylori-related disorders;

(iv) role of testing for H. pylori in children;

(v) test-and-treat strategies for H. pylori infection in children before long-term proton pump inhibitor therapy;
