Abstract

The mechanism underlying the development of ileal pouch inflammation in ulcerative colitis patients (pouchitis) after restorative proctocolectomy is unclear. Persistent systemic T cell activation or expansion of specific memory cell populations could predispose certain patients to develop local inflammation within the neo-rectum. Therefore, the aim was to study the expression of the lymphocyte activation markers CD27, CD30, CD25 and CD69 on the CD45RO+ memory cell subset of isolated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), soluble CD30 levels and mucosal CD30 expression in patients with pouchitis and in controls.
