 Several methods can be used to diagnose Helicobacter pylori infection. Invasive methods include detection of the bacterium in gastric biopsy specimens by culture, immunohistochemistry, rapid urease tests, or the polymerase chain reaction. Noninvasive or less invasive detection methods include the urea breath test and serological methods. The urea breath test is based on the detection of 13CO2 or 14CO2 in breath, produced by bacterial urease in the stomach after labelled urea is swallowed… CONTINUE READING
