Effects of this medicine

This medicine is a urea (13C-urea) preparation which is decomposed into carbon dioxide (13CO2) and ammonia (NH3) due to a urease activity stemming from Helicobacter pylori bacteria and then discharged into expiration. As a result, an examination of a change in 13CO2 volume in expiration can detect the existence of H. pylori bacteria (13C-urea breath test).
It is usually used to diagnose Helicobacter pylori infection.
