Animal models of intestinal inflammation: new insights into the molecular pathogenesis and immunotherapy of inflammatory bowel disease

Stefan Wirtz & Markus F. Neurath
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) in humans are complex chronic inflammatory disorders of largely unknown cause. Several mouse models that in some respects resemble human IBDs have recently been developed and have provided new insights into immunoregulatory processes in the gut. Both genetic and environmental factors have been shown to be involved in chronic intestinal inflammation. In most of the models CD4+ T lymphocytes have been identified as central mediators of inflammation. Inappropriate activation of T(H)1-dominated...
