Background information on the H. pylori test

Helicobacter pylori infection is the most important cause of chronic gastritis. Another mechanism for gastritis and severe atrophic gastritis is the autoimmune mechanism, which can also be triggered by an H. pylori infection. This H. pylori test kit is intended to aid in the diagnosis of H. pylori infection.

Helicobacter pylori is a spiral shaped, gram-negative bacterium that colonizes the human stomach. The organism is found in the mucous layer of the stomach overlying the gastric epithelium and it does not appear to invade tissue. However, the mucosa underneath the area of the H. pylori colonization is invariably inflamed; this condition is referred to as chronic superficial or non-atrophic gastritis, which, if untreated, persists for life. Nevertheless, the chronic inflammatory process can lead to atrophic gastritis, which has been linked with peptic ulceration and gastric cancer, two of the most important diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract. It is estimated that more than 40% of the adult population of the world is still infected with H. pylori.

The epidemiological evidence of a link between H. pylori infection and gastric adenocarcinoma or mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma has resulted in classification of the organism as a group I carcinogen.
