A modified Rapid urease test developed by us was evaluated as a screening test for Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) during and endoscopy survey on patients with Acid Peptic Diseases (APD) and Non Ulcer Dyspepsia (NUD). This was compared with commercially available CLO (Campylobacter Like Organism) test, culture and histopathological examination. The modified Rapid urease test gave a sensitivity of 89.83% and a specificity of 100%, when compared to 95% sensitivity and specificity for commercially available CLO test. Our modified Rapid urease test is simple, economical and a quick test in identifying H. pylori in routine screening of patients with APD and NUD.
