Table 1 Intraepithelial lymphocytosis in specimens from the second part of the duodenum and from the bulb

From: Intraepithelial lymphocyte distribution differs between the bulb and the second part of duodenum

IELs/ 100 enterocytes Tip Side Total T/S
Duodenum 23.0* (19.5-26.5) 21.2* (16.7-25.6) 21.6* (17.5-25.8) 1.26 (1.07-1.44)
Bulb 15.9* (12.0-19.8) 14.0* (11.1-16.9) 14.3* (11.4-17.1) 1.24 (1.06-1.43)
  1. * p<0.01
  2. Tip- the sum of IEL/20 enterocytes from five villi.
  3. Side- the sum of IEL/80 enterocytes from five villi divided by four.
  4. Total- the sum of five villi’s IEL/20 enterocytes in the tip + IEL/80 enterocytes in the side divided by five.
  5. T/S the number of tip enterocytes divided by the number of side enterocytes.
  6. Mean values and 95% CI.
