Host immune responses are crucial for combating enteropathogenic infections including Campylobacter jejuni. Within 1 week following peroral C. jejuni infection, secondary abiotic IL-10-/- mice develop severe immunopathological sequelae affecting the colon (ulcerative enterocolitis). In the present study, we addressed whether pathogen-induced pro-in...
We evaluated the association of cell adhesion molecule 4 (CADM4) expression with clinicopathologic parameters and overall survival (OS) in patients with small intestinal adenocarcinomas (SIAs) and determined its prognostic significance. CADM4 immunohistochemical staining was performed for 170 SIA samples. Loss of or low CADM4 expression was observe...

Celiac disease is diagnosed in part by finding areas of pathology in the small bowel (SB) mucosa. This can often be difficult because the pathologic alterations, including atrophy of the small intestinal villi, can often be sparse and subtle. Some of the quantitative methods for detecting and measuring the presence of villous atrophy from videocaps...
