About H pylori antigen

What is helicobacter pylori?

Helicobacter pylori (also known as Campylobacter pylori) is a type of bacteria which commonly lives in the lining of the stomach. Most people with Helicobacter pylori do not present with any symptoms and it is estimated that 40% of people in the UK have it. In those who do show symptoms, Helicobacter pylori can cause ulcers in the stomach or duodenum, causing severe indigestion.  

Why take the test?

This test checks for the presence of Helicobacter pylori in the stool. It is used to diagnose infection with Helicobacter pylori in individuals who experience stomach or duodenal ulcers.
