ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to optimal sites to biopsy for an accurate diagnosis of H pylori infection based on its topographical distribution using CLO test. Accurate diagnosis of H pylori is critical for the optimal management of patients undergoing gastroscopy. Generally only one antral biopsy is taken fore CLO well. The study concludes that Using CLO well technique to diagnose H pylori, taking 2 biopsies from the body appears to be superior to taking 2 biopsies from the antrum of the stomach.
