CD138+ lymphocytes in gluten challenge. CD138+ lymphocytes in lamina propria stained from PAXgene-fixed duodenal biopsies before (a) and after the gluten challenge (b) in a coeliac disease patient. The CD138+ lymphocyte density was increased in coeliac disease patients on gluten-free diet (GFD) compared with non-coeliac disease control patients; the CD138+ lymphocyte density also increased significantly after the gluten challenge in coeliac disease patients (c)
