For in vitro diagnostic use. RIDASCREEN® Helicobacter is an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for the qualitative detection of Helicobacter pylori-specific antigen in human stool specimens.
Gastric infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori is linked to the development of gastrointestinal diseases, such as chronic gastritis, gastric ulcers, ulcers of the small intestine and gastric cancer. In fact, chronic inflammation induced by H. pylori increases the risk of stomach cancer 5 to 90-fold. Persons infected with H. pylori are therefore at higher risk of developing serious illnesses.
The diagnosis of H. pylori infection is usually performed via invasive methods requiring endoscopy and biopsy. The detectability of the H. pylori-specific antigens in stool samples is an ideal method for non-invasive and direct detection of an H. pylori infection of the gastrointestinal tract.
