Abstract

Confocal endomicroscopy is an emerging technology that poses the endoscopist with challenges for identifying epithelial structures in the human intestine. We have shown previously that the murine intestinal epithelium is punctuated by gaps caused by cell shedding. The goals of this study were to determine if confocal endomicroscopy could resolve the presence of human epithelial gaps and whether a proinflammatory cytokine could increase cell shedding.
