Abstract

Background/Aims: Several invasive and non-invasive methods are available for the detection of H. pylori infection. The accuracy of anti-H. pylori antibodies in serum is low. There is a need for a quick, inexpensive and reliable non-invasive test to detect H. pylori. The aim of this study was to evaluate the enzyme immunoassay for the detection of H., pylori antigen in stool in the Turkish population and compare it to other methods.
