This study was undertaken to evaluate the usefulness of the urea test (UT) in the detection of Helicobacter pylori (HP) in dyspeptic patients. The UT was done in 105 patients with dyspepsia who underwent endoscopy and biopsy. Hematoxylin-eosin and Warthin Starry tissue stains were performed for HP detection, and the resulting microscopic findings were(More)

Helicobacter pylori (Hp) has been associated to gastritis, peptic ulcer, gastric cancer, and other gastrointestinal disorders. The 14C-urea breath test (UBT) has been proposed as a simple and noninvasive method for its detection, and has recently been implemented in our institution. To optimize our resources, we performed a sensitivity analysis to determine(More)
