Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cell has been identified as the histamine-containing argyrophil cell in rat gastric mucosa and vigorously studied. However, there are few reports of the distribution of ECL cell in human stomach. The aim of the present study was to determine the precise distribution of ECL cell by immunohistochemical staining of histidine decarboxylase (HDC) and gastrin-cholecystokinin B receptor (CCK-BR) in human stomach, and the correlation between their distribution and that of parietal cells. Thirty specimens of surgically resected stomach were used. Parietal cell, Grimelius-silver-positive cell, gastrin, HDC- and CCK-BR-immunoreactive cell were studied on continuous cell counting in the restricted field along the lamina muscularis from the oral to the anal ends. The percentage of HDC-immunoreactive cells of endocrine cells was smaller (15%) than that of a previous report (35%) in the fundic region. HDC- and CCK-BR-immunoreactive cells were found not only in the fundic region, but also in the intermediate and pyloric regions. In the pyloric region, HDC- and CCK-BR-immunoreactive cells were found mainly in the mucosa with intestinal metaplasia. Double-positive cells were also found, but only in small numbers. This suggests that ECL cell, or a cell sharing its function, is present in the pyloric region.
