The article comments on the association of t-cell apoptosis and inflammatory bowel disease relative to the two studies published within the issue. The studies suggest that intrinsic defects in the control of programmed cell death in the mucosal t-cell compartment are associated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel diseases, and substantial disputes in the regulation of apoptosis between ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. To give light on the matter, views of the author are presented.

    The deleted-in-polyposis1-like1 (DP1L1) gene displays pro-apoptotic activity and was proposed to be a tumor suppressor. It locates on chromosome 19p13.3, which harbors the locus for Peutz–Jeghers-Syndrome and is deleted in various tumors. We analyzed the association of DP1L1 polymorphisms...
