It should be noted that the adherence of T cells to the endothelium occurs through specific molecules on their cell surface (eg, an integrin called α4β7 and a chemokine called CCR9) and corresponding molecules on the endothelium (eg, MadCAM1), all of which are potential therapeutic targets. In the context of an already inflammatory milieu, these recruited leukocytes find themselves within a highly inflammatory matrix that is replete with inflammatory cytokines. This leads to a further activation of the newly recruited leukocytes and their production of inflammatory mediators that further aggravate the tissue destruction through production 20 ᮡ CHAPTER 2 THE TARGET ts en Ev rs pto ce ns tio Ce llu la Cyt ok in TC e atory Mediat ors amm Infl t and Ad n e m t hes rui ion ec m e b r M rR a ne d n a Re es C Intera P A c ll/ Antigen ᮡ Figure 2–6.

Ischemic colitis may cause pain and bloody diarrhea. However, it is typically acute in onset, self-limited, and localized to a specific segment of the colon. Biopsies readily identify acute ischemic injury. Radiation can cause proctitis, colitis, or enteritis. The injury can be chronic or acute, with symptoms similar to IBD. The diagnosis can usually be made on the basis of history, focal area of involvement, and characteristic biopsy findings. Diversion colitis is usually obvious by history, although distinguishing it from IBD can be a challenge when a patient with preexisting IBD (typically Crohn disease) undergoes a diversion.
