Light- and Electronmicroscopical Studies on the Distribution of Various Cell Types in the Sigmoid Colon of Normal Subjects and in Patients with Crohn’s Disease
Studies on the characterization and distribution of cell populations in normal human intestine and in the intestine of patients with Crohn’s disease [CD] are mainly based on light-microscopical investigations. Since light-microscopical studies alone are insufficient for complete characterization and quantification of cell populations, we studied by means of comparative light-microscopical [LM] and electron-microscopical [EM] photomontages the distribution of cell populations in the sigmoid colon for normal controls and for patients with CD.
