The enteric pathogen Bacillus cereus must survive gastric passage in order to cause diarrhea by enterotoxin production in the small intestine. The acid resistance and the survival after gastric passage were assessed by in vitro experiments with acidified growth medium and gastric simulation medium with B. cereus NVH 1230-88 vegetative cells and spores. First, batch incubations at constant pH values for 4 h, which represented different physiological states of the stomach, showed that spores were resistant to any gastric condition in the pH range of 2.0 to 5.0, while vegetative cells were rapidly inactivated at pH values of ≤4.0. Second, a dynamic in vitro gastric experiment was conducted that simulated the continuously changing in vivo conditions due to digestion dynamics by gradually decreasing the pH from 5.0 to 2.0 and fractional emptying of the stomach 30 to 180 min from the start of the experiment. All of the B. cereus spores and 14% (± 9%) of the vegetative cells survived the dynamic simulation of gastric passage.
