Immune parameters measured were serum nitric oxide levels, serum antibody titers against Eimeria or Clostridium perfringens, mitogen-induced spleen cell proliferation, and intestinal intraepithelial lymphocyte or splenic lymphocyte subpopulations.
Smaller numbers of intraepithelial lymphocytes can also be seen in H pylori gastritis, but the diagnosis of lymphocytic gastritis should be reserved for cases with marked intraepithelial lymphocytosis in the absence of active H pylori gastritis.
