The findings described show that Candida species can be found in the feces of approximately half a population of non‐selected test persons and in the mouths of approximately a third. Intestinal Candida colonization was found in most of these persons after one feces
examination, and in practically all of them after a second examination. 10 d of therapy with 400 mg natamycin per day in sugarcoated tablet form and 40 mg natamycin in the form of tablets for sucking produced a negative fungus test for the feces in only 20 % of the cases. Although a combination
of this therapy with 3 x 10 mg butylscopolamine per day improved short‐term results significantly, the long‐term results were hardly influenced at all. Typifying results according to the Warnock method showed that we are dealing with recurrences in practically all cases and not
with new infections. Minimal inhibition concentrations (MIC) of natamycin showed no marked changes as a consequence of the natamycin treatment.
