Prima Stomach Ulcer Test
WHAT ABOUT ?
Helicobacter Pylori is a bacterium that finds an ideal survival and reproduction environment inside the human stomach; to adapt to the strong acidity present is able to synthesize an enzyme capable of converting urea into ammonia and thus dabbling the gastric acids, decreasing the pH in the space around it. It can be isolated on average in one in three people worldwide, but the mechanisms of infection are not yet known. Among the main symptoms associated with helicobacter infection we mention:
- burning and swollen stomach,
- nausea and sense of fullness,
- inappetence (lack of appetite),
- unexplained weight loss.
The test can be performed anytime of the day. The test can be performed in case of repeated stomach and intestinal troubles.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
The easiest way to detect the infection is through the presence of specific antibodies that the immune system produces after the contact with the bacterium to try to defense. The HELICOBACTER PYLORI TEST is an high specific rapid immunodiagnostic test that allows to detect the presence of the anti-Hp antibodies through a single drop of blood.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The HELICOBACTER PYLORI TEST is a control device based on the principle of highly specific antigen-antibody immunochemical reactions that are used for the analysis of specific compounds in biological fluids. The speed and sensitivity of immunochemical techniques have made them the primary method for screening.
WHY SHOULD I DO THE TEST?
The HELICOBACTER PYLORI TEST is very accurate and has been used by professionals for over 10 years. Evaluation reports show a concordance of over 90% with reference methods, it can certainly be a useful tool to check the presence of the bacterium.
