Helicobacter pylori tests are used to detect a Helicobacter pyloriHelicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection in the stomach and upper part of the small intestine (duodenum ).
Conclusion : The performance characteristics of the Ez-HBT Helicobacter blood test are comparable with that of 13C-urea breath test in establishing H. pylori eradication after therapy. Errors related to incomplete fasting can be mitigated by collection of a basal blood sample.
Specimen Type: Blood. Description: H Pylori IgA Blood Test. This test looks for IgA antibodies which develop in the body in response to infection with the bacteria Helicobacter Pylori (H. Pylori).
blood test is highly sensitive and specific for the initial diagnosis and control of eradication of H. pylori infec-tion.

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacterium that can inhabit various areas of the stomach and small intestine.
Methods Patients with liver cirrhosis underwent psycho-metric tests for detection of MHE, rapid urease test to look for evidence of H. pylori infection and measurement of fasting blood ammonia levels.
