Rapid detection of gastric Campylobacter pylori colonization by a simple biochemical test

, : Rapid detection of gastric Campylobacter pylori colonization by a simple biochemical test. Journal of Clinical Microbiology 27(11): 2604-2605

A simple and rapid urease test to detect Campylobacter pylori infection was evaluated with bacterial culture as the "gold standard." The test was compared with the Gram stain and the conventional Christensen urease test. The culture method detected C. pylori in 29 of 49 gastric biopsy specimens. The rapid urease test showed 27 positive samples within 1 h at 55 degrees C (specificity, 100%; sensitivity, 93%) and 18 at room temperature (specificity, 100%; sensitivity, 62%). The Gram stain exhibited a sensitivity of 86% and a specificity of 91%. The conventional Christensen urease test detected C. pylori in only 4, 10, and 18 samples after 24, 48, and 72 h, respectively (sensitivities, 12, 36, and 60%, respectively; specificities, 95, 95, and 83%, respectively). We conclude that the rapid urease test is simple and highly specific for the detection of C. pylori and that it can be performed with small amounts of sample.

CD49d is emerging as a powerful adverse prognostic marker in chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL). However, flow cytometric testing for CD49d has not yet been widely adopted in the United States, in part due to the lac...

The retention of Cd by an organic soil was investigated as a function of pH and ionic strength. The adsorption of Cd at pH values from 2 to 11 at two ionic strengths (0.053 M and 0.017 M LiNO3) were found to be a function of both pH and ionic stre...
