For In Vitro Diagnostic Use
H. pylori (RM) [EP279] is a rabbit monoclonal antibody that is intended
for laboratory use in the qualitative identification of H. pylori protein by
immunohistochemistry (IHC) in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded
(FFPE) human tissues. The clinical interpretation of any staining or its
absence should be complemented by morphological studies using
proper controls and should be evaluated within the context of the
patient’s clinical history and other diagnostic tests by a qualified
Summary and Explanation:
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection represents the major cause of
peptic ulcer disease and is a likely contributing factor in the
development of gastric neoplastic diseases such as gastric
adenocarcinoma and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT)
lymphoma (1). H. pylori are spiral-curved, gram-negative bacteria.
The majority of H. pylori microorganisms reside in the unstirred layer
of the gastric mucus, but some bind to the luminal aspect of gastric
foveolar cells, and attach at or near intercellular junctions, or even
locate within cells (2-3). However, generally they do not invade the
underlying lamina propria (3). Immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of
H. pylori can specifically distinguish the microorganisms from other
types of bacterial infections. Complete staining of the H. pylori
microrganism has been shown with the rabbit monoclonal. An IHC
technique, with heat-induced-antigen retrieval for detection of H. pylori
in gastric biopsies, is highly reliable, highly sensitive, specific, and can
be used on fully automated IHC platforms.
Principle of Procedure:
Antigen detection in tissues and cells is a multi-step
immunohistochemical process. The initial step binds the primary
antibody to its specific epitope. After labeling the antigen with a
primary antibody, an enzyme labeled polymer is added to bind to the
primary antibody. The detection of the bound antibody is evidenced by
a colorimetric reaction.
