The reliability of this rapid screening test for detecting antibodies against Helicobacter pylori has been proven in an extensive comparative study with histology, ELISA and RUT (Rapid Urease Test).
Due to positive results, the use of helicoCARE can be recommended as a screening test. Without the use of complex equipment, it is possible to obtain information on the existence of Helicobacter pylori within a few minutes. In this way, the use of antibiotics can be reduced and the high number of antibiotic prescriptions to uninfected patients can be avoided.
