Gastric Ulcer Test

 
Gastric Ulcer Test

Gastric Ulcer Test - £55.00
Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori) is a cork-screw shaped bacterium that lives in the mucus coating the lining of the stomach and duodenum. It can irritate the lining of the stomach causing inflammation and is a major causative factor in stomach and duodenal ulcers, gastric cancer and other forms of gastritis. It can also pass from one person to the next and, therefore, the partner of the person infected by H.pylori should consider being tested. Typical symptoms of gastritis include vomiting, nausea and abdominal pain. Stomach ulcers are very similar to mouth ulcers where raw, sensitive patches develop on the lining of the stomach and cause a gnawing or burning pain.
Helicobacter pylori Screen is an ELISA that detects IgG antibodies to H.pylori in the patient's blood. The test is sensitive enough to detect an infection and it is also a useful tool to monitor treatment since H.pylori antibody levels decrease with successful eradication therapy. A pin-prick blood sample is required. Results are available within 10 working days.
