Table 4 A low gastric IFN-γ (score ≤ 1) expression on the epithelium coexisting with high sialyl-Lex (score ≥ 7) and IL-10 (on both matrix and lymphocytes) was correlated to persistent bacterial colonization in the early acquisition age of mice.

From: Persistent H. pylori colonization in early acquisition age of mice related with higher gastric sialylated Lewis x, IL-10, but lower interferon-γ expressions
