The presence of spirochetes in human gastric mucosa

Conclusions

  1. 1.

    Spirochetes are rarely found in the mucosa of gastric tissue resected for duodenal ulcer without attendant gastric ulcererations.

     
  2. 2.

    They are frequently found in those stomachs whose mucosa is diseased by malignant or benign ulcerations. In these instances they are found in or close to the lesion.

     
  3. 3.

    The silver impregnation method of DaFano will demonstrate spirochetes in the gastric tissue of the dog and human.

     
  4. 4.

    Incubation and exposure to room temperature for varying periods seemed to exert very little influence on the number of spirochetes in human gastric mucosa.
