Although the amount of radioactivity in the 14C-UBT is very small, the half-life is long and the long-term effects are unpredictable. Consequently the 13C-UBT may be more ideal with regard to radiation issues (35). However, the 13C-UBT is more expensive and involves a test meal that makes it less simple than the 14C-UBT. Overall, the performance of both types is similar, and they have a diagnostic sensitivity of more than 95% and a specificity of more than 90% (35,36). As opposed to serologic testing, the UBT only detects active infection and is suitable to document eradication of H.
