Helicobacter Pylori: Culture, Urease Test, Histological and Serological Studies.
Mother & Child Jan ;35(1):23-30.
Biopsy samples were taken from the antral gastric mucosa of 200 patients referred for endoscopy. Blood was also taken for serological studies. Helicobacter pylori was grown from 82 patients and the organism was seen in sections from 172 biopsies. The direct urease test was positive in 144, and the antibodv was found in 125 out of 186 cases, by the Elisa test. There was a strong correlation between the presence of the organism, a positive urease test, detectable antibody and the histological gastritis.
