Background: There is evidence that adipocytokines play an important role in metabolism and in inflammation. Because human metabolism dramatically changes in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and… Expand
CCR9-positive lymphocytes and thymus-expressed chemokine distinguish small bowel from colonic Crohn's disease.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Thymus-expressed chemokine (TECK) or CCL25) is selectively expressed in the small bowel (SB), where lamina propria lymphocytes (LPL) and intraepithelial leukocyte expressing the… Expand
Role of Kupffer cells in the pathogenesis of liver disease.
Kupffer cells, the resident liver macrophages have long been considered as mostly scavenger cells responsible for removing particulate material from the portal circulation. However, evidence derived… Expand
