Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common chronic gastrointestinal disorder, which represents an economic burden to society and considerably reduces the quality of life of patients. In a previous study, the density of serotonin cells in the ileum of IBS patients was lower compared with control subjects. The present study aimed to further investigate the immunoreactivity intensity of serotonin and serotonin‑selective reuptake transporter (SERT) in the ileum of IBS patients. A total of 98… CONTINUE READING
