Comparing Diagnostic Methods
ACG guidelines recommend urea breath test (UBT), fecal antigen test (FAT), and endoscopy for eradication testing.1
ACG guidelines no longer include serology in H. pylori testing recommendations since it is not a test for active infection2
Some diagnostic labs have discontinued offering serologic testing for H. pylori3,4
Stool testing is associated with relatively low patient adherence5,6
In one study, more patients returned for a post-treatment UBT vs FAT (N=29)6
BreathTek® UBT for H. pylori aligns with guideline recommendations to test, treat, and confirm eradication of H. pylori infection.
