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

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
