Changes in the Paneth cell population of human small intestine assessed by image analysis of the secretory granule area.

Abstract

Estimates of the Paneth cell population in human jejunum and ileum were made using measurement of the granule area in micron2 by image analysis in a defined number of crypts. This figure was preferable to granule area per mm as there was a significant difference in crypts per mm between biopsies and surgical samples. In the jejunum no significant difference… (More)
