Helicobacter pylori, previously named Campylobacter pylori, is a Gram-negative, microaerophilic bacterium found in the stomach, and may be present in other parts of the body, such as the eye. Individuals infected with H. pylori have a 10 to 20% lifetime risk of developing peptic ulcers and a 1 to 2% risk of acquiring stomach cancer. Inammation of the pyloric antrum is more likely to lead to duodenal ulcers, while inammation of the corpus (body of the stomach) is more likely to lead to gastric ulcers and gastric carcinoma. However, H. pylori possibly plays a role only in the rst stage that leads to common chronic inammation, but not in further stages leading to carcinogenesis. VoxPress H.Pylori Antibody Rapid is a Test device which contains: H.pylori antigen as the capture molecule and H. pylori antigen colloidal gold conjugate as detection molecule.
