Abstract

Helicobacter pylori was orally inoculated into Mongolian gerbils. The organisms were able to colonize in the gastro-mucosal layer of the gerbils, especially in those gerbils which had mucosal lesions caused by indomethacin treatment. The pathological changes developed by H. pylori infection were restricted to the stomachs, and only slightly inflammatory cells were observed.
