Abstract

Background: H. pylori is now accepted to be the infective pathogen that causes most gastric and duodenal ulcers. H. pylori infection causes chronic atrophic gastritis during the later stage of the illness. Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of (H. pylori) antigen in stool used in the detection of H. pylori infection compared with a urea breath test. Methods: 65 patients undergoing a routine health check-up were prospectively enrolled. A (13) C-urea breath test, and a stool antigen test were performed for the detection of H. pylori. Results: Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values, and accuracy of the stool antigen test was 96.9%, 50.0%, 82.3%, 76.9%, and 95.6%, respectively. The sensitivity of the (13) C-urea breath test was100%, and their specificity was 100%, found that H. pylori are lower in males than females. Conclusions: stool antigen test was highly sensitive and low specific when compared with the urea breath test in the diagnosis of H. pylori infection. In this study, age is one risk factor age group (21– 40) is more affected than another age group.
