Key MethodBiopsy specimens were taken from intact areas of antral mucosa in 100 consecutive consenting patients presenting for gastroscopy. Spiral or curved bacilli were demonstrated in specimens from 58 patients. Bacilli cultured from 11 of these biopsies were gram-negative, flagellate, and microaerophilic and appeared to be a new species related to the genus Campylobacter. The bacteria were present in almost all patients with active chronic gastritis, duodenal ulcer, or gastric ulcer and thus may be an…Expand

Campylobacter associated gastritis in patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia.
TLDR
Gastric biopsy specimens from 109 patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia were retrospectively examined and it was concluded that there is a quantitative rather than a qualitative association between C pyloridis and gastritis. Expand
Relation of Campylobacter pyloridis to gastritis and peptic ulcer.
TLDR
Curved or spiral gramnegative bacilli were isolated from 10 of the specimens on chocolate agar incubated at 37 C under microaerophilic conditions and resembled the organism recently named Campylobacter pyloridis by other investigators. Expand

TLDR
Although the organisms are present in over 70% of patients with peptic ulcer disease care must still be taken with identification, as other gastric spiral organisms can be present that are not Campylobacter pylori. Expand
Campylobacter-like organisms in patients with gastric ulcer.
TLDR
It is suggested that CLO may be associated with chronic antral gastritis and hence with gastric ulcer, but the causal relationship remains unclear. Expand
Gastritis and gastric campylobacter-like organisms in patients without peptic ulcer.
TLDR
Gastric biopsy specimens were obtained from 83 patients without peptic ulcer disease and gastric campylobacter-like organisms (GLCO) were identified histologically in 91% and grown on culture in 88%: antibody to GCLO was detected in 81%. Expand

TLDR
A 16-year-old Caucasian male presented with nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, and it is believed that this is one of the first reported pediatric cases in North America. Expand
Retrospective study of Campylobacter-like organisms in patients undergoing partial gastrectomy.
TLDR
It is concluded that Campylobacter-like organisms have a role in gastritis after partial gastrectomy, although this role is more prominent in the corpus region. Expand
Campylobacter pylori infection in Meckel's diverticula containing gastric mucosa.
TLDR
Infection and associated mucosal inflammatory infiltrate were limited to areas of gastric mucosa only and the detection of the organism at this site remote from the gastroduodenal environment suggests the organism may be transmitted by the orofaecal route. Expand
Prevalence of Campylobacter pylori in duodenal and gastric mucosa--relationship to inflammation.
TLDR
Endoscopic biopsies from 310 patients studied for the presence of Campylobacter pylori found Cp presence was associated with gastritis irrespective of severity and site, but was absent in areas showing intestinal metaplasia. Expand
Campylobacter pylori in esophagus, antrum, and duodenum
TLDR
Two hundred forty-six patients with a wide range of upper gastrointestinal tract disorders were investigated for the presence of Campylobacter pyloriinfection in esophagus, gastric antrum, and duodenum, and microbiological and histological techniques were used to exclude the existence of the organism.

Spiral organisms in endoscopic biopsies of the human stomach.
TLDR
A significant association between the occurrence of spiral bacteria and gastritis was noted but not with carcinoma, peptic ulceration, or high pH of the gastric aspirate. Expand
The presence of spirochetes in human gastric mucosa
TLDR
The silver impregnation method of DaFano will demonstrate spirochetes in the gastric tissue of the dog and human and incubation and exposure to room temperature for varying periods seemed to exert very little influence on the number of spiroChetes in human gastric mucosa. Expand
The aerobic and anaerobic microflora of the gastric remnant more than 15 years after Billroth II resection.
TLDR
The bacteriology of the gastric remnant contents was examined in 150 patients 15-20 years after Billroth II resection for duodenal ulcer disease, and aerobic and anaerobic microflora were cultured and analyzed semiquantitatively. Expand
Relationship of bile in the stomach to gastritis.
TLDR
The authors caution against ascribing undue significance to the presence of intragastric bile to patients evaluated for the presence and concentration of bile in fluids accumulated in the dependent portion of the stomach at gastroscopy. Expand
The histological diagnosis of chronic gastritis in fibreoptic gastroscope biopsy specimens
TLDR
A classification of chronic gastritis is proposed that includes the type of mucosa, the type and stage of activity of the gastritis, and the presence and type of metaplasia and is sufficiently flexible to allow within it quantitative assessment of individual histological features. Expand
Electron microscopy of Campylobacter jejuni.

TLDR
Stools from 56 patients with gastroenteritis were cultured for Campylobacter jejuni and the five strains isolated were examined by electron microscopy and most displayed appearances similar to those of V. fetus. Expand
The antrum in patients with duodenal and gastric ulcers.
TLDR
All of the gastric mucosa was studied and mapped out and the surface area of the antrum measured with a planimeter and the Van Gieson stain was used to show the increase in fibrous tissue in the mucosa and submucosa. Expand
Gastroduodenitis. A broader concept of peptic ulcer disease.
TLDR
It is believed that gastroduodenitis can be symptomatic and may present with the same manifestations as peptic ulcer crater and is an independent entity or part of the spectrum of acid peptic (ulcer) disease. Expand
Correlation of mucosal histology and aspirin intake in chronic gastric ulcer.
TLDR
The microscopic appearance of the mucosa of 50 partial gastrectomy specimens resected for chronic gastric ulcer was correlated with the patient’s intake of aspirin, and the normal pyloric gland mucosa and the unusual distribution of the ulcers in these 7 patients suggest that theUlcers were drug-induced.

Spirochetes in Gastric Glands of Macacus rhesus and Humans without Definite History of Related Disease
TLDR
A review of the literature fails to reveal observations or studies of these organisms in the human stomach, but reports of spirochetes in the gastric glands or parietal cells of humans were not found. Expand
