Helicobacter Test

Helicobacter Test is a diagnostic test. It can be used to test adults and adolescents aged over 12 years to establish whether gastric infection caused by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori exists. This breath test is an innovative method with close to 100 % reliability.

Helicobacter pylori is a micro-organism that is the most common cause of gastritis and with the worsening of the disease may extend to development of stomach ulcers or cancer.

The test should be conducted at least four weeks after completion of antibacterial therapy and two weeks after the last dose of medication for suppressing gastric acid secretion. These substances can affect the results of the Helicobacter Test.

How is Helicobacter test used?
A sample of breath is taken at regular intervals. The active substance is 13C urea. Helicobacter pylori contains enzymes called ureases that make it able to break down urea into carbon dioxide, which is then removed in the breath. When the patient takes Helicobacter Test, the 13C urea contained in the test is broken down by Helicobacter pylori into carbon dioxide that also contains 13C. This labelled carbon dioxide can be measured by specialised laboratories using a technique called mass spectrometry.

Ashraf Darwish

Отлично отношение и безкомпромисно следване на поставените цели! От личен опит мога да потвърдя, че е трудно и отнема време докато един пациент открие правилния екип от лекари, които да се ангажират искрено и да припознаят случая му като важен за тях. В Мастер Дент работят амбицирани и мотивирани личности, които вместо да констатират проблемите, могат и ви предлагат реални и конкретни решения.
