Accioly, J.M., Phillips, N.D., Robertson, I.D., Pethick, D.W., Mullan, B.P. and Hampson, D.J. (2000) Links between diet, spiral bacteria in the gastric mucosa and ulceration in the stomach. In: 16th International Pig Veterinary Society Congress, 17 - 20 September, Melbourne, Australia p. 48.
Despite gastric ulcers being common in pigs, the pathophysiology of the condition in swine is poorly understood. Among other factors diet and bacterial infection have been incriminated as causes of the condition (1). This study had the objective of investigate the effects of two wheat-based diets, previously tested in weaners and shown to have protective and deleterious effects on the stomach respectively (2), on spiral bacterial populations in the gastric mucosa.
