Abstract

Newborns suffering from short bowel syndrome (SBS) after massive intestinal resection have numerous infectious complications, which may be due to immunoincompetence from the loss of gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). This study examines the ontogeny of GALT in the rat with SBS. A total of 36 3-week-old rats were divided into two groups: I, sham operated (C, n = 16); and II (SBS, n = 20), with a 50% resection of small intestine with jejunoileostomy. At 4, 5, 6, and 10 weeks of age the animals were sacrificed and the GALT was assessed by video analysis and immunoperoxidase monoclonal antibodies, OX8 (CD8), W-3/25 (CD4), and MARA-2 (IgA). The data were expressed as positive staining lymphocytes per 104 μm2 (mean ± SD). {A table is presented}.
