Abstract

The microbial colonization of the oropharynx, the esophagus and the stomach were studied in 60 patients. Patients with gastritis, carcinoma and a history of gastric resection harboured more microorganisms in their stomachs than patients with gastric or duodenal ulcers. Patients with gastric carcinoma were colonized with the highest numbers of different microorganisms.
