Licorice has been used as an antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti inflammatory in researches .Extraction of this medical plant is used as the basis of anti-ulcer medicine for treatment of peptic ulcer. Patients and Methods: In the present study, licorice decoction (20gr/dl,33gr/dl) was prepared and anti microbial activity on helicobacter pylori growth was studied by disk diffusion method and cup plate method. Results: The results showed that licorice decoction 33gr/dl by disk diffusion method inhibited growth of helicobacter pylori in vitro the same as metronidazole.(P value=0.709) However, it does not have anti bacterial activity against helicobacter pylori like amoxicillin and clarythromycin (Pvalue~0.000). Conclusion: Decoction licorice (20gr/dl, 33gr/dl) can not be used as an alternative to choice antibiotics (amoxicillin, clarythromycin) in vitro.
