Negative antibody tests indicate absence of current and potentially past infection. Antibody tests are not recommended after treatment of H. pylori. Stool antigen and urea breath tests are effective in identifying present infection.
Colonization with H. Pylori is associated with risk of patients developing gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and gastric adenocarcinoma. Serologic testing is recommended only for symptomatic patients. H. Pylori IgG may be detected for years in infected individuals, even after successful antibiotic treatment.
