Stomach biopsy specimens from greater than 40 individuals with Campylobacter pyloridis-associated gastritis were examined by light and electron microscopy. The bacteria were consistently seen in two locations: within the gastric mucus and associated with intercellular junctions of gastric epithelial cells. C. pyloridis is suggested to be one of a broad group of spiral bacteria that are adapted to the peculiar niche provided by intestinal mucus. The spiral morphology and the form of motility of… CONTINUE READING
