Detection of IgG Antibodies to Helicobacter pylori, which may be useful in diagnosing chronic gastritis associated with H. pylori infection.
This test should be used only when the patient has symptoms suggestive of gastrointestinal disease. This is a qualitative test. The performance characteristics of this assay have not been established for use with specimens from cord blood, neonates, pediatric patients, or pre-transplant patients.

Collect specimen in an SST (preferred) or red top tube. Centrifuge, aliquot serum into a plastic vial, and refrigerate up to 1 week or freeze for longer storage.
A postive test result in symptomatic individuals should be confirmed by other diagnostic testing. This test cannot distinguish between active and inactive infection. Helicobacter pylori is strongly associated with chronic type B gastritis. H. pylori gastritis is present in virtually all patients with idiopathic chronic duodenal ulceration.
