In this study, we evaluated a rapid whole-blood test, BM-test Helicobacter pylori, for detection of H. pylori infection in 144 and 48 patients with other gastrointestinal symptoms and with gastric cancer, respectively. The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and diagnostic accuracy of the test correlated well with the standards used for the calculation, i.e., serology by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or culture and histology.
