Figure 2 Blood neutrophil (granulocyte) counts in healthy controls and patients with inflammatory bowel disease. This figure shows a very marked elevation of neutrophils during active inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Additionally, in patients with IBD, neutrophils show activation behaviour and increased survival time in the circulation[26,36] as well as within the mucosal tissue[25]. bP < 0.01 vs control group. UC: Ulcerative colitis; CD: Crohn’s disease.
