Abstract

Patients of chronic gastritis should be investigated with gastric mucosal biopsy, parietal cell antibody, intrinsic factor antibody, Helicobacter pylori antibody, urea breath test or faecal antigen test for Helicobacter pylori, to accurately classify them. The results of these tests will indicate Helicobacter pylori infection (present or past), the role of hereditary factor (intrinsic factor antibody present or absent) and the success or failure of Helicobacter pylori eradication treatment.
