A combination of the Helicobacter pylori stool antigen test and urea breath test
is useful for clinical evaluation of eradication therapy: a multicenter study.
Non-invasive methods are the urea breath test
, serological tests, and detection of Hp antigen in the stool.
Sample collection and [sup]13C urea breath test
Pathogen-specific stool antigen tests are a valid alternative to the Urea Breath Test
(UBT) for non-invasive detection of H.
The non- invasive urea breath test
should be performed to confirm the presence of H.
Higher results in our study could have been achieved if we had used fecal antigen test or urea breath test
This study identified 300 patients with dyspepsia or peptic ulcer who tested positive for H pylori by urea breath test
The first, the urea breath test
is simple and 95 per cent reliable.
SAN DIEGO -- The capsule urea breath test
is more accurate than conventional endoscopic testing and serology for diagnosing Helicobacter pylori infection, results of a study of 100 patients showed.
14]C urea breath test
offers diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori in 10 minutes.
There is also a urea breath test
, but patients must be off of antisecretory medication for at least 2 weeks before the test is performed.
