Goal To assess the efficacy of rapid urease test (RUT) in patients with bleeding ulcers, as well as the effects of visible blood in the stomach and short-term (<24 h) use of standard-dose proton pump inhibitor (PPI) on RUT sensitivity. Background The sensitivity of RUT in the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori in upper gastrointestinal bleeding has been reported with conflicting results. Study This was a prospective case-control study evaluating 324 consecutive patients with bleeding peptic… 
Early Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Vietnamese Patients with Acute Peptic Ulcer Bleeding: A Prospective Study
TLDR
H. pylori infection rate in Vietnamese patients with acute PUB is high and RUT is an excellent test if at least 2 biopsies are taken, and the positive rate of RUT was similar at each biopsy site but significantly increased if RUT results from 2 or 3 sites were combined.
Helicobacter pylori infection in bleeding peptic ulcer patients after non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug consumption.
TLDR
Biopsy specimen culture after an early upper gastrointestinal tract endoscopy seems the most efficient test to detect H. pylori infection, and was obtained with the culture of biopsy specimens.
Increasing Biopsy Number and Sampling from Gastric Body Improve the Sensitivity of Rapid Urease Test in Patients with Peptic Ulcer Bleeding
TLDR
The sensitivity of RUT was 61 % during peptic ulcer bleeding and can be increased significantly by increased biopsy number from gastric antrum or biopsy from Gastric body.
Diagnosis, Treatment, and Outcome in Patients with Bleeding Peptic Ulcers and Helicobacter pylori Infections
TLDR
Testing for and diagnosing Hp infection are essential for every patient with UGI hemorrhage asufficient evidence supports the concept that Hp infections eradication can heal the ulcer and reduce the likelihood of rebleeding.
Accuracy of the Helicobacter pylori diagnostic tests in patients with peptic ulcer bleeding: a systematic review and network meta-analysis
TLDR
Assessment of the accuracy of diagnostic tests for H. pylori in patients with PUB in a diagnostic test accuracy (DTA) network meta-analysis found that use of combined tests may have a rationale in clinical practice due to their higher sensitivities.
Helicobacter Pylori Infection in a Group of Egyptian Children With Upper Gastro-Intestinal Bleeding
TLDR
Triad of increased ALT, decreased albumin levels and negative H. pylori infection could be a significant triad in predicting variceal bleeding as a cause of upper GIT bleeding in children.
Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori using the rapid urease test.
TLDR
The rapid Urease test (RUT) is a popular diagnostic test that detects the presence of urease in or on the gastric mucosa and can be used to provide an informal assessment of the accuracy of the Histopathology result and discrepancies should prompt a review of the histopathology and discussions with the pathologist.
Reliability of Diagnostic Tests for Helicobacter pylori Infection
TLDR
The accuracy of UBT was comparable to the invasive tests, and it is recommended for situations when endoscopy is not needed, and there was a strong correlation between the results of U BT and the histological scores of H. pylori colonisation.
[Guidelines of diagnosis for peptic ulcer disease].
TLDR
A guideline for the diagnosis of peptic ulcer is proposed according to domestic, international clinical studies, and experts opinions with level of evidence and grade of recommendation.

Rapid urease tests lack sensitivity in Helicobacter pylori diagnosis when peptic ulcer disease presents with bleeding
TLDR
The prevalence of H. pylori is lower in patients with bleeding DUs when compared to patients with uncomplicated DUs, and the sensitivity and negative predictive value of the RUT is lower than that observed in patients presenting with bleeding, and other methods for H.pylori diagnosis should be used in this patient group.
Diagnostics of Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with peptic ulcer bleeding.
TLDR
In peptic ulcer bleeding, RUT combined with histology is an adequate diagnostic approach, however, false negative results have to be considered following even short-term HpSuT or hospitalization, and non-invasive diagnosis based on serology alone is inaccurate and should be complemented by the urea breath test prior to starting Hp SuT.
Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori in Bleeding Peptic Ulcer Patients, Evaluation of Urea-Based Tests
TLDR
The validity of the rapid urease test (RUT) and 13C-urea breath test in patients with bleeding and nonbleeding peptic ulcers was compared and it was found that the sensitivity of the RUT was lower when blood was present in the stomach, which was the case in only half of the patients.
Accuracy of three diagnostic tests used alone and in combination for detecting Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with bleeding gastric ulcers.
TLDR
Comparisons of diagnostic tests and their combined usage in detection of H. pylori infection in patients with bleeding gastric ulcers and without the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs suggest that UBT is superior to the other two tests in bleeding gastrics ulcers.
Low sensitivity of invasive tests for the detection of Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with bleeding ulcer.
TLDR
The sensitivity of invasive tests for detection of H. pylori is low during acute ulcer bleeding, and they should be used with caution in this condition.
Comparison of invasive and noninvasive tests for detecting Helicobacter pylori infection in bleeding peptic ulcers.
Diagnosis method of Helicobacter pylori infection in bleeding peptic ulcer.
TLDR
The invasive combination of histology and biopsy-rapid urease test in stable bleeding peptic ulcer patients without coagulopathy for H. pylori diagnosis is suggested and if negative, the serology test was suggested to confirm the absence of H.pylori.
A negative rapid urease test is unreliable for exclusion of Helicobacter pylori infection during acute phase of ulcer bleeding. A prospective case control study.
[Prospective study on the influence of gastroduodenal ulcer hemorrhage on the diagnostic methods in Helicobacter pylori infection].
TLDR
Urease test has a high false negative rate when is studied in patients with peptic ulcers and upper gastrointestinal bleeding, and could be a good diagnostic method for H. pylori infection.
Comparison of diagnostic methods for Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding.
TLDR
The prevalence of H. pylori infection in patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding from peptic lesions is high and sensitivity of the rapid urease test for diagnosing H.pylori is low in this setting.
