Just some updates.
I have completed the first 50 lot of test kits. So I have 50 more test kits to complete.
There is also a need to review the treatment protocol for peptic ulcer disease and H.pylori infection in PNG. There is mounting evidence that the drug sensitivity of the drugs used to treat H.pylori infection is variable depending on geography location. Helicobacter pylori is also called Campylobacter pyloridis. I think the name is now changed. Thank you to Dr Ajay for correcting me. That is the thing with medical knowledge, it changes so fast we have to keep up to date. I welcome any comments or suggestions on how I can expand this study.
I think that is my next project – comparing symptom resolution in patients with suspected C.pyloridis infection getting different treatment protocols currently advocated. Good clinical study I reckon.
Keep watching for my next post for any updates.
Its not “Helicopter” but “Helicobacter” pylori or “Campylobacter pyloridis”.
Best wishes for your study.
Thanks Dr Ajay.
Much appreciated for the information and share!
The best test is picking up Helocobacter pylori in stool sample. Blood test is less sensitive and specific. If you need nay help with more specific and sensitive stool test kit, Contact me. Dr Kende
Dr Kende email me your proposals.
And if you dont mind, send me list of the literature on studies examining sensitivity and specifcity of the method on testing for H.pylori in stool specimen.
Has your kit been locally validated. How are you sure that your positives or negatives are not FALSE results?
Results have been validated in Western Australia under the supervision of Professor Barry Marshall.
