Gastric biopsy specimens were obtained three each from the antrum and corpus for rapid urease test RUT, histology, culture and PCR for H. Patients who were positive for H.
Rapid urease test The tissue specimens were used for the RUT Pronto dry, Medical Instrument Corp, France consisting of a dry filter paper enriched with urea, phenol red a pH indicator, buffers and a bacteriostatic agent in a sealed plastic slide.
The color change from yellow to pink was considered a positive result and no color change as negative for Pronto Dry. Histological analysis Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded gastric biopsy specimens were routinely processed.
