AbstractObjective: To evaluate the accuracy of a rapid assay that was developed to detect Helicobacter pylori antigen in the stool, using the principle of immunochromatography, in the Chinese population. Methods: Eligible patients without prior treatment of H. pylori were recruited. An in-house rapid urease test (RUT) and histology were used as the gold standard. The results of the rapid stool antigen test were compared with the gold standard. Results: Valid rapid stool antigen test results for interpretation were obtained from 94 consecutive patients (mean age: 52.5, range: 22-82 years). Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value and accuracy were, respectively, 77.5%, 87.0%, 81.6%, 83.9% and 83.0%. The test was easy to perform and results were available within 15 min. Conclusion: The rapid stool antigen test using immunochromatography accurately diagnoses H. pylori infection in Chinese patients.
