From: Interferon-γ promotes gastric lymphoid follicle formation but not gastritis in Helicobacter-infected BALB/c mice

Fig. 5

Chronic H. felis infection induced similar levels of gastritis but less lymphoid aggregate formation in Ifng −/− BALB/c mice than in infected Ifng +/+ animals. The levels of PMN and lymphocyte infiltration in the a, b antrum and c, d body of the gastric mucosa were scored blind according to the grading scheme in the “Methods” section. e Lymphoid aggregate numbers were assessed over the entirety of gastric tissue sections. Histopathological scores for individual mice are presented. One-way ANOVA: NS not significant; *P = 0.015
