Brief Summary:

Nowadays, the gold standard examinations for diagnosing H. pylori infection are histopathology and culture examination. However, those examinations take long preparation so they are not suitable to be applied in daily practice. In progress, another examination is being developed to detect urease enzyme from tissue biopsy. It is relatively faster in diagnosing H. Pylori infection. Some commercial urease tests which are available in Indonesia are Helicotec® and Pronto Dry®.

This study aims to determine the effectivity of Helicotec® in diagnosing H. pylori infection. It is expected to be scientific evidence that can be used as the basis daily routine of urease test in diagnosing H. Pylori infection.
