Comparative evaluation of stool antigen immunoassay and blood antibody test methods for the screening of Helicobacter pylori infection in asymptomatic population at tertiary care hospital


Author(s): Saroj Kumar Thakur and Dr. Tarsem Lal Garg

Abstract: Helicobacter pylori is a bacterial pathogen associated with various gastrointestinal disorders, including gastritis, peptic ulcers, and even gastric cancer. Early detection of H. pylori infection in asymptomatic individuals can aid in preventing the progression of these diseases. This research paper aims to compare the diagnostic accuracy and cost-effectiveness of two commonly used screening methods, stool antigen immunoassay and blood antibody tests, for detecting H. pylori infection in asymptomatic individuals attending a tertiary care hospital. The study will involve a large sample of asymptomatic participants who will undergo both types of tests, and the results will be compared to a reference standard, such as endoscopy or biopsy. The findings will provide valuable insights into the most efficient and reliable method for H. pylori screening in individuals without apparent symptoms, contributing to better disease management and prevention strategies.
