Background and objectives: Oxalobacter formigenes (OF) may play a protective role in preventing calcium oxalate stones. Intestinal colonization by OF is associated with reduced urinary oxalate excretion. Exposure to antibiotics may be an important factor contributing to variable rates of colonization. This is the first prospective study to evaluate the effect of antibiotics on OF colonization.
Design, setting, participants, & measurements: The effect of antibiotics on OF colonization was compared in 2 groups: a group receiving antibiotics for gastric infection with Helicobacter pylori (HP) and a group without HP that not receiving antibiotics. OF colonization in stool was detected by oxalate degradation at baseline and after 1 and 6 months.

Antibiotics for H. pylori
Patients who underwent upper endoscopy and were found to have H. pylori, and were then to be treated with antibiotics for eradication of H. pylori
Control group, no H. pylori
Patients who underwent upper endoscopy and found to not have H. pylori, and then would not receive antibiotics
