Respiratory tests in diagnostics of Helicobacter pylori infection


The Research Objective: Comparative assessment of informational content of various techniques, respiratory tests for Helicobacteriosis detection. Methods et methods: Research of existence of H.pylori in stomach has been conducted by respiratory tests in 106 patients with various diseases of stomach and duodenum. All researches have been conducted on an outpatient basis. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy with mucous biopsy and determination of H.pylori in biopsy materials have been followed by respiratory tests. Respiratory tests 13C UBT and 14C UBT have been carried out. The comparative analysis of respiratory tests for Helicobacteriosis detection has been performed. Results: The conducted researches have showed that, the respiratory tests are favourable for H.pylori diagnostics. They are methodically simple and short-term. Conclusion: Results of comparative researches showed that ammoniac respiratory tests for Helicobacteriosis detection in stomach possess lesser sensitivity than the 13C UBT — respiratory test and may be used for the primary diagnostics which results demand carrying out additional methods of diagnostics. Low specificity of these techniques and inauthentic results do not control the efficiency of eradication of H.pylori and do not present any value in medical examination of the population.
