A study comparing commercially available rapid urease tests
, the CLO test (Delta West Bentley, WA, Australia), ProntoDry (Medical Instrument Corp., Solothurn, Switzerland) and HpONE (GI Supply, Camp Hill, Pa, USA) showed a sensitivity of 86.2%, 93% and 93% respectively.
During the years after discovery by Marshall and Warren, it has been stated that the rapid urease test
(RUT) is a one of the cheapest but rapid diagnostic tests used in detecting this infection .
Rapid Urease Test
. RUT (PyloriTek, Serim Research Corp., Elkhart, Ind., USA) was carried out randomly (2: 1 basis).
. Gastroenterol Clin N Am 2000; 29: 871-878.
A rapid urease test
may be performed during upper endoscopy to evaluate a patient's H.
pylori organisms associated with chronic active inflammation on antral histology or by the combination of both a positive UBT and a positive rapid urease test
. Absence of H.
At day 45 (range, 44 to 50) from the start of treatment, a follow-up endoscopy was scheduled Healing was defined as complete epithelialization of the ulcer crater, and at least five samples (three from the antrum, one for urease test
, and two from the fundus) were obtained.
The rapid urease test
and histology may not prove to be specific tests since the presence of other urease producing bacteria with H.
RAPID UREASE TEST
: The first biopsy specimen was inoculated in Stuart's urease broth (4) and incubated at 37[degrees]C.
82/64 (78%) fresh samples had a positive Urease test
In the this study, based on rapid urease test
and histopathological diagnosis, the H.
Validity (Accuracy) of rapid urease test
(RUT), Gram staining, histopathology and ELISA IgG antibody were compared with culture in terms of sensitivity, specificity.
