Endothelial-bound cell adhesion molecules are important in recruiting inflammatory cells to the mucosa in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Little is known of the expression of these molecules in relation to the recruitment of particular cell subtypes in the early course of mucosal inflammation. We therefore studied the expression of several adhesion molecules to examine their potential correlation with the cellular infiltrate in the inflamed ileal pouch, a possible disease model for ulcerative colitis.
