Evidence for increased apoptosis of duodenal intraepithelial lymphocytes in cow's milk sensitive enteropathy.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Enterocyte apoptosis induced by activated intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) is increased in celiac disease (CD). A lesser increment in intraepithelial lymphocytes associated with normal villous structure is also characteristic of cow's milk sensitive enteropathy (CMSE), but no information is available about the apoptosis rate of this condition… (More)
