dear immunologists out there,
here is a physiologist with an urgent question.
what are the levels of proinflammatory-/ "stress"-cytokines and
leucocytes of all kind in the sane mesenterial vascular bed/ in vessels
entering intestine/bowel compared to levels/titers of sane vessels of
another origin? are there any studies/papers on this topic? is it
rational and sound to assume that levels/titers are higher in the
mesentery than in other tissues because of the "dirty" enviroment?
any hints, answers and suggestions will be greatly apprechiated,
thanks in advance and best regards for all (to not answering readers as
well as to the (hopefully) many others of course....)
bye marco cattaruzza
