Studies of human mucosal lymphoid follicles are rare and have been limited to children's Peyer's patches, which are visible at endoscopy. We investigated lymphoid follicles in ileum biopsies of 87 patients and surgical colon specimens from 66 cancer patients, and examined phenotype and function of isolated follicular immune cells. Two (0-10) and 12 (0-117) follicles per patient were found in ileum and colon samples respectively (P < 0.001). The number of lymphoid follicles mononuclear cells… CONTINUE READING
