  A 55-year-old man complains of epigastric burning pain which is nonradiating but lasts for hours and is worsened by meals. An upper gastrointestinal series is performed, which reveals a benign-appearing, 1-cm ulcer in the antrum. There is no melena, hematochezia, fever, chills, dysphagia, odynophagia, or weight loss. He is treated with omeprazole and describes an immediate relief of pain. Which of the following should be performed?

(A) Obtain an H. pylori antibody to determine if he should be treated with antibiotics

(B) Arrange a repeat endoscopy in 4 to 6 weeks to verify healing of the ulcer

(C) He should avoid aspirin and NSAIDs

(D) No dietary restrictions are necessary

(E) All of the above are appropriate recommendations
