The gastric cancer patients have intestinal dysbiosis characterized by inhibition of protective and activation of opportunistic microflora against the background of digestion disorders of carbohydrates, fats, proteins and accumulation of toxic exchange products, which are an important pathogenetic factor of activation, induction, proliferation and metaplasia of the tumor tissue. The presence of Streptococcus bovis stomach cancer patients may be an early marker of disease progression. The leading metabolic profile of microbiocenosis in the development of stomach cancer is the significant accumulation of biogenic amines, which in turn may have a prognostic value for diagnosis, and the determination of pathogenetic therapy in patients with gastric cancer. The results of the study of intestinal microbiocenosis in patients with gastric cancer testify to the violation of interspecific ratios of the microflora that populate the intestine in normal conditions. Reducing the level of lactobifid bacteria and bacteroids, which in the process of life form a milk, acetic, anthraquine, succinic acid, may be one of the most important causes of changes in the trophic, protective, metabolic and immunological function of the gastrointestinal tract, due to the change in intestine of pH medium. The analysis of the results of the study shows that the failure of anastomosis in patients with gastric cancer is accompanied by profound disorders of the metabolism of connective tissue and is confirmed by increased activity of elastase, collagenolithic activity of blood serum and its content of glycosaminoglycans. The activity of elastase and glycosaminoglycans may be a prognostic criterion for dehiscence of sutures in the course of treatment.
