Small intestine mucosa is often affected with malabsorptive, autoimmune and inflammatory pathological processes. However, morphometric data on the healthy human small intestine mucosa, especially ileum, are scarce. We aimed to obtain histoquantitative data on the healthy jejunal and ileal mucosa and assess the effects of gender and ageing on these parameters. Computer-aided morphometric analysis was performed on 24 jejunal and 25 ileal biopsy samples collected upon routine endoscopy screening…

Histochemical and morpho-metrical study of mouse intestine epithelium after a long term diet containing genetically modified soybean
TLDR
Investigating the duodenum and colon of mice fed on genetically modified (GM) soybean during their whole life span by focusing on the histological and ultrastructural characteristics of the epithelium, the histochemical pattern of goblet cell mucins, and the growth profile of the coliform population demonstrated that controls and GM-soybean fed mice are similarly affected by ageing.
Structural, functional and molecular analysis of the effects of aging in the small intestine and colon of C57BL/6J mice
TLDR
In 21-month old mice the most pronounced effects of aging were observed in the colon, whereas very few changes were observed on the small intestine, which might contribute to aging-induced vitamin B12 deficiency.

TLDR
The senile change of several digestive organs by aging, especially at the view of the gastrointestinal functions, is discussed, with review of literatures.
Changes in the small intestine of Schistosoma mansoni-infected mice fed a high-fat diet
TLDR
A high-fat diet and infection had a significant impact on the small intestine morphology and morphometry among the animals tested.
Beta-7 integrin controls enterocyte migration in the small intestine.
TLDR
The E-cadherin beta-7 integrin pathway probably controls migration of enterocytes within the small intestinal surface lining epithelial layer.
Ileal and faecal protein digestibility measurement in humans and other non-ruminants - a comparative species view.
A comparative non-ruminant species view of the contribution of the large intestinal metabolism to inaccuracies in nitrogen and amino acid absorption measurements is provided to assess potential
THE EFFECTS OF DIETARY SODOIUM NITRITE SUPPLEMENTATION ON JEJUNAL MUCOSA AND POSSIBLE PROTECTIVE EFFECT OF VITAMIN A IN ALBINO RATS
TLDR
Results of the current study revealed that diatry supplemtation of nitrite cause multible jejunal mucosal injury but the co-administration of Vitamin A greatly reduce the toxic effects of Nitrite supplementation on jejalan mucosa.
The influence of food restriction on the small bowel: Does intensive short‑term food restriction lead to weight loss?
TLDR
Data suggest that intensive short‑term food restriction followed by ADL feeding has effect on weight loss, and morphological changes in the small intestine of Hyplus broiler rabbits following an eight-day food restriction programme are shown.

A quantitative morphometric study of rectal mucosa in adult and aged healthy subjects.
TLDR
The number of crypts per 0.1 mm2 of tissue increased with aging in both males and females, whereby the crypts were always more numerous in males than in females, and the changes associated with ageing were discrete and affected only the male subjects.
Ageing and small-bowel mucosa: a morphometric study.
TLDR
The frequent finding of malnutrition due to malabsorption in the elderly should not be attributed to a reduction of jejunal surface area as a mere consequence of age.
Small Bowel Enterocyte Apoptosis and Proliferation Are Increased in the Elderly
TLDR
The data suggest that the maintenance of mucosal architecture throughout the process of aging is due to either a hyperproliferative state or an exaggerated apoptosis with a consequent cellular immaturity, which may impair the absorptive function observed in stress conditions.
Responses of small intestinal architecture and function over time to environmental factors in a tropical population.
TLDR
The whole cohort had structural and functional evidence of tropical enteropathy, but structure and function were only weakly correlated, and seasonal variation was observed in villous height, xylose recovery, and permeability.
Jejunal mucosal morphometry in children with and without gut symptoms and in normal adults.
TLDR
Discriminant analysis of the features measured showed effective separation of the following groups:normal histology from partial villous atrophy in children, healthy adults from 'control' children, and normal histology in adults from normal histologists in children.
Quantitative histomorphometric study of the jejunal mucosa in chronic alcoholics.
TLDR
Jejunal suction biopsies of 18 chronic alcoholics and 10 nonalcoholic control subjects were analyzed quantitatively using the microdissection technique described by Clarke and revealed a more than twofold increase in the number of interepithelial mononuclear cells.
Morphometric studies of the small intestine following jejuno-ileal shunt operation.
TLDR
After shunt operation adoptive hypertrophy in the functioning remnant, a considerable length growth and dilatation of the gut, as well as a marked increase in villous height and total mucosal thickness, were demonstrated, which seem to be more marked in the distal part of the small intestine.
Use of morphometry and immunohistochemistry of small intestinal biopsy specimens in the diagnosis of food allergy.
TLDR
It is concluded that immunohistochemistry of jejunal biopsy specimens is of considerable value in the diagnosis of food allergy.
[Quantification of the three-dimensional structure of jejunal mucosa in healthy subjects and patients with coeliac disease (author's transl)].
TLDR
Mucosal transformation in coeliac disease was associated with a decrease in villi and crypts per mm2 intestine as well as in mucosal surface and an increase in crypt depth and number of mitotic figures per crypt.
Ageing and duodenal morphometry.
TLDR
There was no evidence for a significant effect of age on proximal small bowel morphometry and there were no significant correlations between age and areas of duodenal surface epithelium, crypts and lamina propria.
