ABSTRACT
Crohn's disease has been associated with reduced ability to recruit neutrophils to sites of trauma. Six patients with Crohn's disease were compared to 8 controls, approximately matched for age, sex, and smoking history. No patient was taking immunosuppressive or anti-inflammatory medication. This work provides a new method to study acute inflammation in the gut, and adds considerable weight to the hypothesis that Crohn's disease actually represents a form of immuriodeficiency.
