Stromal cell changes in human colorectal adenomas and carcinomas


Structural changes in stromal cells during the development of human colorectal carcinomas were studied by light and electron microscopy. The results were as follows: 1. Stromal cells of the lamina propria in control subjects consisted principally of resting fibroblasts. 2. Stromal fibroblasts were mildly activated in adenomas with mild- moderate atypia, and… (More)
