Up-regulation of Smad7 in the epithelial and lamina propria compartments of the ileal mucosa of Crohn’s disease patients. Quantification of Smad7-positive cells in the whole intestinal mucosa (a), epithelial (b) and lamina propria (c) compartments of 6 CD patients with no endoscopic recurrence (i0-i1), CD patients with endoscopic recurrence (i2-i4), CD patients with established lesions and normal control patients. Smad7 positive cells were manually counted in at least 5 high power fields/section of 3 independent experiments. Data indicate the individual number of Smad7 + cells in each patient; horizontal bars indicate the median values
