Smad7 is up-regulated in the early lesions of Crohn’s disease. Quantification of Smad7 positive cells in the whole intestinal mucosa (a), epithelial (b) and lamina propria (c) compartments of 12 CD patients undergoing endoscopy 6 months after ileocolonic surgery, 13 CD patients undergoing endoscopy 12 months after ileocolonic surgery and 5 normal controls. 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
