Subject: [Histonet] H.Pylori

We do an H.P. routinely on stomach, body, fundus, antrum, pyloric, prepyloric, and gastric (Not on cardia area of stomach or GE jcn.)

We use a kit from Newcomer Supply of a Steiner-Chapman modified Silver Stain.

The pathologist's order an IHC for H.P. only about 5% of the time, if for example, they do not see H.P. from the silver stain, but the patient has a history of H.P.
