Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a microorganism that colonizes the stomach in about 50% of all humans(1), leading to chronic gastritis. Among the patients colonized by H. pylori, 1-10% will develop a gastric or duodenal ulcer, and 0.3 – 3% will develop a stomach cancer(2). H. pylori is now recognized as the first microorganism involved in cancer.
BIONEXIA® H. pylori Ag test detects Helicobacter pylori antigen in human stool specimens (adult and children). It is an accurate aid for the diagnosis of active H. pylori infection for patients presenting with symptoms of gastritis and/or ulcers, and to confirm H. pylori eradication after treatment(3).
