Abstract

Numerous abstracts evaluating one or more commercial Helicobacter pylori (HP) serology kits have been submitted at this meeting, reflecting the abundance of kits available today in the marketplace. The clinical application of serology is to rule out an ongoing HP infection in dyspeptic patients, family members of an index patients, or after treatment. A positive serology result should lead the patient to endoscopy for confirming the presence of bacteria, determining drug resistance, and evaluating the associated gastrointestinal lesions. This implies that serology kits should be optimized for sensitivity. Practically, this seems to be the case (Tables 1, 2).
