Nested polymerase chain reaction for detection of Helicobacter pylori in gastric biopsy specimens.

Abstract

Sensitivity and specificity are important for tests used to defect Helicobacter pylori infection from gastric biopsy specimens. Molecular methods, such as PCR and nested PCR, are sensitive methods for H. pylori detection. The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of PCR and nested PCR compared to culture, the rapid urease test (RUT) and… (More)
