OBJECTIVE:The aim of this study was to investigate whether reducing intragastric pH, at the time of urea ingestion, decreases the likelihood of false-negative (FN) urea breath test (UBT) results in patients taking a proton pump inhibitor (PPI).METHODS:Patients with active Helicobacter pylori infection underwent a baseline 14C-UBT (UBT-1) followed by treatment with lansoprazole 30 mg/day for 14 to 16 days. On day 13, patients returned for a repeat standard UBT (UBT-2). Between days 14 to 16… CONTINUE READING
