BACKGROUND: To compare the accuracy and reaction time of a new dry rapid urease test (GUT test) with the CLO test and an independent gold standard in the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection. To determine whether this new test can replace the CLO test in routine clinical practice. METHODS: We included consecutive patients in whom normal-sized gastric biopsies were taken in routine practice. six antral and three corpus biopsies were taken for determination of H. pylori infection. results…

A multicenter prospective study on the diagnostic performance of a new liquid rapid urease test for the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection

This was the first study evaluating the preOx-HUT in a prospective, multicenter clinical setting and found a high diagnostic accuracy for the point-of-care, invasive diagnostic test of H. pylori infection.

Sensitivity and Specificity of an in-house Rapid Urease test for Detecting Helicobacter pylori Infection on Gastro-duodenal Biopsies in Sudan

The results indicate that the iRUT is a-sensitive, specific, simple, and cost effective test that can be appropriately applied for detecting H. pylori infection in gastric biopsy specimens.

Detection of Helicobacter pylori: A faster urease test can save resources.

Direct comparison of locally available urease test kits is worthwhile, since the appropriate choice results in a significant saving of resources.

Periferik Hastahane İmkansizliklarinda Bir İmkan; "Hizli Üreaz Testi" An Opportunity On Peripheral Hospital Impossibilities "Fast Urease Test"

In this study, HP rate by Fast Urease Test in the peripheral hospitals is compared and Fast UREase Test's sufficiency is researched to start the treatment that is going to stop serious health problems swiftly because a lot of methods used in infection detection are not available in peripheral hospitals.

Prospective study to validate HpOne in the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infectionS W Y, Tan K Y, Cheng A K S, Mak K S W, Aye A T, Pang M

The HpOne test is a new five-minute rapid urease test developed for the rapid detection of Helicobacter pylori infection during gastroscopy but evidence in the literature supporting its use clinically is scarce.

Modified rapid urease test for detection of Helicobacter pylori infection

Application of the HUT-test to a simple biopsy from the antrum can establish the diagnosis of H. pylori infection with high accuracy, similar to that of the standard CLO-test.

Comparison of the Clinical Feasibility of Three Rapid Urease Tests in the Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori Infection

Both ProntoDry and HpONE were superior to the CLO test in terms of accuracy, reaction time, and cost-effectiveness.

Prospective Comparison of Rapid Urease Tests (PyloriTek, CLO Test) for the Diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Symptomatic Children: A Pediatric Multicenter Study

It is concluded that PyloriTek is an appropriate rapid urease test to use in children and may have an advantage over the CLO test because of its shorter reading time.

Evaluation of a new biopsy urease test: Pronto Dry, for the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection

Both the Pronto Dry and the CLO tests were highly accurate for the diagnosis of H. pylori infection and showed a quicker positive reaction time and the positive colour change was more distinct.

Comparison of Two Rapid Urease Tests for Detection of Helicobacter pylori Infection

The clinical usefulness of the rapid urease test, CLOtest and PyloriTek, using histology as the gold standard is concluded, which is limited by its lack of specificity.

The Pyloritek test and the CLO test: accuracy and incremental cost analysis.

Results of the Pyloritek test at 1 h and the CLO test at 24 h are comparable in terms of detection of urease activity.
