dc.description.abstract The occurrence of pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacteria isolated from the throats of Ball State University students was investigated in a surveillance study utilizing weekly throat swabbings. The reference population was divided into three groups: the control; semi-control; and experimental groups respectively. The experimental group was exposed to numerous bacterial pathogens and non-pathogens biweekly during one academic quarter. The objective of the study was to determine if the throat flora of an individual within the experimental group underwent colonial changes in relation to the bacterial organisms the individual was exposed to. The results of the study indicate that bacterial colonial changes did not occur within the throat region following bacterial exposure.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306 en_US
