Peculiarities of the Gingiva Cellular Composition and Functional Activity of the Epithelial Cells among the Children Patients with Chronic Gastritis and Duodenitis
At the children with chronic gastritis and duodenitis was revealed destroyed of morphological - functional property of gums with prevalence of degenerative component, which is manifested by appearance of basal and parabasal cells (0.3%), increasing of intermediate epithelial cells (84.7%), decreasing amount of surface nucleated epithelial cells (11.7%), and nuclear-free dead skin cells (4.3%). Majority of cells was with cytopathology shifts (18.2%), polymorphonuclear leukocytes (92.3%) and lymphocytes (20.5%). The data obtained in the research showed that 23 (21.5%) of samples, taken from children with chronic gastritis and duodenitis revealed cells in the early stages of differentiation, accumulation of leukocytes and fibrin, which demonstrates erosions of the gums in the epithelial layer. Adhesion of epithelial cells with Candida albicans at the children with chronic gastritis and duodenitis indicates about changes functional properties of the epithelial cells, growing on a background of the somatic pathology.
