Antibiotics resistance in Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is the major factor for eradication failure. Molecular tests including fluorescence in situ hybridization, PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism, and dual priming oligonucleotide-PCR (DPO-PCR) play critical roles in the detection of antibiotic susceptibility; however, limited knowledge is(More)
AIM We established a high-throughput multiplex genetic detection system (HMGS) for identification of Helicobacter pylori with concomitant analysis of virulence and drug resistance. MATERIALS & METHODS Confirmed 132 H. pylori cultures from gastric biopsies were screened by 20-gene site-HMGS, sequencing and E-test. RESULTS HMGS was highly sensitive and(More)
AIM We evaluated the direct high-throughput multiple genetic detection system (dHMGS) for Helicobacter pylori in gastric biopsies. MATERIALS & METHODS One hundred and thirty-three specimens were concurrently analyzed by dHMGS, rapid urease test, culture and sequencing. RESULTS dHMGS was highly sensitive and specific for H. pylori identification compared(More)
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is closely related to various gastroduodenal diseases. Virulence factors and bacterial load of H. pylori are associated with clinical outcomes, and drug-resistance severely impacts the clinical efficacy of eradication treatment. Existing detection methods are low-throughput, time-consuming and labor intensive.(More)
