BACKGROUND RANTES (regulated on activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted) expression is increased in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). RANTES is produced at higher levels in granulomatous conditions, so increased RANTES expression can be expected in Crohn's disease compared with ulcerative colitis. AIM To compare RANTES expression between intestinal biopsy specimens of patients with Crohn's disease and those with ulcerative colitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective study of… CONTINUE READING
