Table 2 Number of IELs per 100 enterocytes in the second part of the duodenum and in the bulb in patients with and without HLADQ2/8

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

IELs/100 enterocytes Tip Side Total T/S
DQ2/8 duodenum 22.1 (14.9-29.2) 21.5 (11.1-31.9) 21.8 (12.2-31.5) 1.27 (0.90-1.63)
Non-DQ2/8 duodenum 23.6 (19.6-27.6) 20.9 (16.7-25.2) 21.5 (17.5-25.4) 1.25 (1.03-1.46)
DQ2/8 bulb 16.8 (7.9-25.7) 14.0 (9.0-19.0) 14.2 (8.8-19.6) 1.28 (0.92-1.64)
Non-DQ2/8 bulb 15.3 (11.9-18.6) 14.0 (10.0-17.9) 14.3 (10.7-17.9) 1.22 (0.99-1.45)
  1. Tip- the sum of IEL/20 enterocytes from five villi.
  2. Side- the sum of IEL/80 enterocytes from five villi divided by four.
  3. Total- the sum of five villi’s IEL/20 enterocytes in the tip + IEL/80 enterocytes in the side divided by five.
  4. T/S the number of tip enterocytes divided by the number of side enterocytes.
  5. Mean values and 95% CI.
