Macrophage subpopulations in lamina propria of normal and inflamed colon and terminal ileum.
The aim of this study was to characterise human intestinal macrophages in normal and inflamed ileum and colon. Immunoperoxidase staining with a panel of monoclonal antibodies and histochemical staining for acid phosphatase and non-specific esterase was performed. In the superficial lamina propria, normal colonic macrophages were larger and more strongly positive for acid phosphatase and non-specific esterase than those in normal terminal ileum. There were more macrophages staining with monocl...Expand abstract
