Synonyms:

Anti-Campylobacter Antibodies
Anti-H pylori Antibodies

Clinical Use:

Aid in the diagnosis of acute and chronic H pylori infections in patients with gastric and duodenal disease. Current studies suggest that H pylori IgM testing should be performed concomitantly with H pylori IgA and/or IgG tests for accurate diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection.

Test Information:

Results of this test are for investigational purposes only. The results should not be used as a diagnostic procedure without confirmation of the diagnosis by another medically diagnostic product or procedure.
Circulating antibodies to H pylori are predominantly of the IgG class. A systemic response of the IgA type is usually less pronounced but if significant, may indicate an early infection. Antibodies to IgG are the most useful for monitoring treatment.
