Cytokeratin research of patients with chronic inflammatory bowel disease

Markku Voutilainen, Turku University Hospital

Cytokeratins are supporting proteins of intestinal epithelial cells. Changes of these proteins are considered to play a role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The aim of the study is to further understand inflammatory bowel disease by investigating structural changes of cytokeratins and to clarify the relation of these changes to the course of the disease.
