Instruct the patient to fast and restrict fluids for 6 to 8 hr prior to the UBT or tissue biopsy procedure. Additionally, patients scheduled for a UBT, stool antigen test, or tissue biopsy and culture may be instructed to avoid the use of proton pump inhibitors (e.g., omeprazole, lansoprazole, esomeprazole), antacids, antibiotics, or oral bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol); instructions for withholding medications are by medical direction. Protocols may vary among facilities.
Method: Enzyme immunoassay for stool antigen test, negative. UBT: Less than 50 dpm (disintegrations per minute) is considered a negative finding. Tissue biopsy and culture, negative for H. pylori.
