Abstract

The aim of the study was to assess microorganisms growing on standard media for Helicobacter pylori culture. In the majority of the population studied, apart from H. pylori there were extra 1-3 colonies of 29 bacteria and 2 yeasts; the most common microorganisms cultured besides H. pylori were Streptococcus salivarius, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Corynebacterium spp. The low percentage of failed H. pylori culture and the simultaneous success of culture for other microorganisms suggests that other microorganisms occurring in the stomach only slightly inhibit H. pylori growth under laboratory conditions.
