The expression of nerve growth factor receptor in colon from 20 patients with Hirshsprung's disease and 10 controls was studied immunohistochemically. The myenteric and submucous plexuses in the ganglionic bowel and hypertrophic nerve trunks in the aganglionic bowel displayed strong expression of nerve growth factor receptor. The most important finding was(More)
Nerve supporting cells were examined immunohistochemically for the expression of S-100 protein and D7 antigen (markers of peripheral Schwann cells) and GFAP (a marker of central-type nerve supporting cells) in pyloric tissue from 18 patients with infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) and 10 age-matched controls. In both the IHPS and control groups(More)
