Clinical Information:
Helicobacter pylori is a spiral-shaped gram-negative bacterium that may cause chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, or gastric neoplasia. In adults of industrialized countries, an estimated 0.5% of the susceptible population becomes infected each year, although the incidence has been decreasing over time. The organism may asymptomatically colonize humans. In suspected Helicobacter pylori-associated disease, the noninvasive stool antigen or urea breath test is recommended. If patients fail to respond to treatment and antimicrobial resistance is suspected, a gastric biopsy, gastric brushings, or gastric aspirate may be cultured to attempt to recover the organism for antimicrobial susceptibility testing to assess for resistance
 
Reference Value:
No growth after 14 days
 
Interpretation:
A positive result provides definitive evidence of the presence of Helicobacter pylori. Organisms may be detected in asymptomatic (colonized) individuals. False-negative culture results may occur since the organism may die between biopsy collection and laboratory culture.
