Core Tip The urea breath test (UBT) is a pivotal noninvasive method for detecting Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori); however, its reliability is challenging. This meta-analysis aimed to compare the precision of the 13C-UBT and 14C-UBT in diagnosing H. pylori among adults with dyspepsia, providing insights to enhance clinical strategies.
