The Chemtrue. One-Step H. pylori Antibody Test is a rapid test for the qualitative detection of IgG antibodies specific to Helicobacter pylori in human serum, plasma and whole blood specimens. This test kit is intended as an aid in the diagnosis of H. pylori infection in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms.
Gastritis and peptic ulcers are one of the most common human diseases. Since the discovery of H. pylori (Warren &Marshall, 1983) , many reports have suggested that this organism is one of the major causes of ulcer diseases (Anderson & Nielsen, 1993; Hunt & Mohammed, 1995; Lambert et al. 1995) and stomach cancer (Eurogast Study Group, 1993) . Although the exact role of H. pylori is not fully understood, the eradication of H. pylori has been associated with elimination of ulcer diseases. The human serological responses to infection with H. pylori have been demonstrated (Varia & Holton, 1989; Evans, er. al, 1989) . The detection of the specific IgG antibodies to H. pyiori has been shown to be an accurate method for detection of H. pylori infection in symptomatic patients. However, H. pylori may colonize in some asymptomatic persons. The Chemtrue. One-Step H. pylori Antibody Test is intended for use in the detection of the IgG antibodies specific to H. pylori in serum, plasma or whole blood. This information can be used by the physician and the patient for ulcer disease management.
