SATs comprise enzyme immunoassays (EIAs) or immunochromatographyassays (ICAs), detecting H. pylori antigens by the use of either monoclonal or polyclonal antibodies. In general, ICAs are easier to perform than EIAs, but previous studies have shown

dissociation was suggested to overcome this problem [ 21 ]. In a meta-analysis, sensitivity of gold immunochromatographyassays (GICA) was slightly better than sensitivity of ELISA approaches [ 22 ]. Heat inactivation of sera was described as not relevantly

use of an immunochromatographyassay (ICA) in that study as compared to EIAs by us, as the sensitivity of toxin ICAs is slightly lower than that of toxin EIAs [ 2 ].
Furthermore, CDI could be excluded with high negative predictive value (NPV
