BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is one of the most important causes of dyspepsia and gastric cancer and diagnosis can be made by invasive or non-invasive methods. The Atlas Helicobacter pylori antigen test is a new rapid non-invasive method which is simple to conduct. The aim of this study was to determine its sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), negative predictive value (NPV) and accuracy. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study was conducted between… Expand
Reliability of stool antigen tests: investigation of the diagnostic value of a new immunochromatographic Helicobacter pylori approach in dyspeptic patients.
TLDR
The Genx H. pylori stool antigen card test is a new rapid, non-invasive test that is fast and simple to perform but provides less reliable results. Expand
Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection in children and their mothers using some non-invasive techniques
TLDR
Stool, serum and saliva samples were collected from each enrolled child and mother to detect H. pylori antigens in stool using chromatographic immunoassay and IgG antibodies in serum and spit by enzyme linked immune sorbent assay (ELISA) and testing H.pylori IgG Abs in serum was more useful in adults than in children. Expand
The Evaluation of Diagnostic and Predictive Values of Helicobacter pylori Stool Antigen Test in Iranian Patients with Dyspepsia
TLDR
The current study findings corroborated the use of HpSA test to detect and follow-up patients with Hp infection, as an alternative method to detect Hp rather than invasive procedures. Expand
Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection: Current options and developments.
TLDR
The aim of this article is to review the current options and novel developments of diagnostic tests and their applications in different clinical conditions or for specific purposes. Expand
Accuracy of rapid Helicobacter pylori antigen tests for the surveillance of the updated prevalence of H. pylori in Taiwan.
BACKGROUND The updated prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is lacking in Taiwan. We aimed to assess the accuracy of Vstrip® H. pylori Stool Antigen Rapid Test (Vstrip®HpSA) in the detectionExpand
Non-invasive diagnostic tests for Helicobacter pylori infection.
TLDR
To compare the diagnostic accuracy of urea breath test, serology, and stool antigen test, used alone or in combination, for diagnosis of H pylori infection in symptomatic and asymptomatic people, a meta-analysis was performed by using the hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic (HSROC) model.

Screening for Helicobacter pylori Infection among Asymptomatic University Students in Alexandria, Egypt, Using Non Invasive Laboratory Techniques
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) discovered, as a human pathogen, by Marshall and Warren in 1982 (Marshall and Warren, 1984) is a gramnegative bacterium that colonizes the human stomach and can leadExpand

TLDR
An updated critical review of the usefulness of the various invasive and noninvasive tests in the context of extensive PPI use is provided. Expand
Burden of Helicobacter pylori Infections and Associated Risk Factors among Cases of Iron Deficiency Anaemia in Egypt
TLDR
A significant association between H. pylori infection and iron deficiency anaemia is detected among asymptomatic cases of anaemia and the possibility that such infection may play a detrimental role in their blood picture, serum iron and ferritin levels and total iron binding capacity is addressed. Expand
A Review of Gastric Cancer Research in Malaysia
TLDR
Besides seeking to reduce risk factors and achieve early detection, implementation of improved care for patients with late disease must be promoted in Malaysia and Prompt endoscopy is advocated and open access to services using a weighted scoring system should be more utilized. Expand

Validation of a rapid stool antigen test for diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection.
TLDR
It is concluded that the lateral flow stool antigen test can be used as an alternative to breath test for H. pylori infection diagnosis especially in developing countries. Expand
Comparison of 4 laboratory methods for detection of Helicobacter pylori.
TLDR
Culture, histology, and H. pylori stool antigen tests all have comparable results, and there is no need to use all 3 at the same time, for the diagnosis of H.pylori infection in Saudi patients with dyspepsia. Expand
[Investigation of the presence of Helicobacter pylori by different methods in patients with dyspeptic complaints].
TLDR
HpSA method could be applied as a screening test for H. pylori diagnosis in case endoscopy could not be performed, however, if invasive methods were to be performing, the diagnosis should be confirmed by a more sensitive and specific test such as culture and histopathology. Expand
Stool Antigen Test for the Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori Infection: a Systematic Review
TLDR
The stool antigen test seems to be a cost‐effective method and performs well in children, while sensitivity and/or specificity in patients with gastrointestinal bleeding may be suboptimal. Expand
Comparison of Noninvasive Diagnostic Tests for Helicobacter pylori Infection
TLDR
According to this study, capsule UBT was highly accurate compared with other noninvasive tests including conventional UBT and serology and could become a good alternative to endoscopy for the diagnosis of H. pylori infection. Expand
Clinical significance of Helicobacter pylori cagA and iceA genotype status.
TLDR
Virulence factors were not common in this cohort of H. pylori infected patients and the incidence of factors cagA, iceA1 and iceA2 were very low although variations were noted in different ethnic groups. Expand
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. Expand
Factors associated with Helicobacter pylori infection, results from a developing country - Pakistan.
TLDR
This study demonstrated that H. pylori infection can be related to ABO blood group, middle age persons and male gender, so people of blood group O are more prone to develop infection related gastritis, ulcers, and even perforations, so they should be more cautious against transmission of the bacterium. Expand
Comparison of Helicobacter pylori antibody detection in stool with other diagnostic tests for infection.
TLDR
Results obtained with biopsy urease and HpSA tests were generally similar to those obtained by histopathological examination, and a review of national and international literature showed similar findings. Expand
Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori: invasive and non-invasive tests.
TLDR
Helicobacter pylori infection can be diagnosed by invasive techniques requiring endoscopy and biopsy and by non-invasive techniques, such as serology, the urea breath test, urine/blood or detection of H.pylori antigen in stool specimen. Expand
