AbstractConsecutive Chinese patients undergoing endoscopy for dyspepsia were tested for Helicobacter pylori infection by two rapid whole-blood tests: FlexPack HP (Abbott Laboratories) and Helisal One-Step (Cortecs Diagnostics). Biopsy-based tests (rapid urease test and histology) and the [13C]urea breath test were used as the 'gold standard.' One hundred sixty-one consecutive patients were studied, and 88 (54.7%) were confirmed to have H. pylori infection. The sensitivities, specificities, and positive and negative predictive values were 81.8%, 83.6% (P = 0.008), 85.7% (P = 0.04), and 79.2% for FlexPack HP and 84.1%, 63.0% (P = 0.008), 73.3% (P = 0.047), and 76.7% for Helisal One-Step, respectively.
