Management Of Helicobacter Pylori Infection—the Maastricht V/Florence Consensus Report

The 13C-UBT is the best approach to the diagnosis of H. pylori infection, with high sensitivity and specificity, and excellent performances.


Out of 12 RCTs comparing the‘test-and-treat’ strategy to OGD or PPI therapy, eight (66%) were performed with UBT, four (33%) with serology, and none with SAT.


14C UBT has also been proposed because of its lower cost, but as it exposes patients to radiation it cannot be used in children and pregnant women.
