Helicobacter pylori IgA test

It is our pleasure to announce that starting from 11.02.2019, new test for detection of IgA antibodies against H.Pylori is available in Avicena Laboratory.  


Helicobacter pylori is a type of bacteria that is known to be a major cause of peptic ulcers. H. pylori testing detects an infection of the digestive tract caused by the bacteria to help diagnose the cause of symptoms and/or ulcers.

H. pylori infections of the digestive tract are very common, with as many as half of the world's population infected. However, most people with H. pylori never have any symptoms. Still, H. pylori infection increases the risk of developing ulcers (peptic ulcer disease), persistent stomach inflammation (gastritis), and gastric (stomach) cancer. The bacteria decrease the stomach's ability to produce mucus, making the stomach prone to damage from digestive acid and peptic ulcers.

The infection with H.pylori makes a rise of IgA и IgG serum antibodies. In many cases, these secretory IgA antibodies develop first, even before the IgG antibodies. 

The complete answer to an infection with Helicobacter pylori, in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms includes,  can been given with Helicobacter pylori IgG и Helicobacter pylori IgA testing and detection of Helicobacter pylori antigen in feces.
