The study had two components: an in vitro study assessing cell survival, cytokine expression and cellular oxidative stress upon human epithelial cells infected with influenza virus, and an in vivo study evaluating the potential immunomodulatory functions of RGE upon influenza A virus infection in a mouse model.
The researchers demonstrated that the human immune system can mount a response against mutant proteins expressed by cancers that arise in epithelial cells which can line the internal and external surfaces of the body.

Discarding the initial eight to 12 drops of CSF did not lower the incidence of epithelial cell recovery.
For laser confocal microscopy, 2 lung tissue sections were prepared for each subject, one to stain for activated (phosphorylated) p65 (p-p65) (NF-[kappa]B) and epithelial cell marker (surfactant protein B [SP-B]), and the other to stain for FRA-1 and SP-B.
Lethal epithelial cellular injury promotes crystal nucleation, aggregation and retention and nephrolithiasis is a consequence of renal epithelial cell exposure to oxalate and calcium oxalate crystals (Khan 2006).
Since the corneal epithelium is of the stratified squamous type, autologous epithelial cells such as oral, conjunctival, nasal and oesophageal epithelia, all having a similar morphology, could be considered as an alternative to allogenous limbal transplants.
To investigate the hypothesis that TNF regulates intestinal epithelial cell migration by activation of specific receptors, artificial wounds were created in confluent monolayers of the conditionally immortalized mouse small intestinal epithelium (MSIE), young adult mouse colon (YAMC) and the murine TNFR1 -/- colon cell lines.

In vivo and in vitro experiments showed that interfering with Eya1 phosphatase function resulted in defective epithelial cell polarity and mitotic spindle orientation; disrupted Numb, a cell fate determinant; and inactivated Notch signaling, which is involved in cell segregation and division, thereby establishing Eya1 as an important regulator in the development of embryonic lung stem cells.
To provide insights into possible mechanisms by which BRB inhibit esophageal carcinogenesis, we evaluated an ethanol (EtOH) extract of BRB, and two component anthocyanins (cyanidin-3-O-glucoside and cyanidin-3-O-rutinoside) in BRB, for their effects on growth, apoptosis, and gene expression in rat esophageal epithelial cell lines.
The objective of this study was to compare innate responses of intestinal epithelial cell lines to pathogenic bacteria and to lactobacilli.
The epithelial cell-population was gated out and adhesion was determined by the percentage of epithelial cells that became fluorescent after attachment of stained bacteria.
The data from this in vitro work showed that viral replication increased around 50 times in asthmatic bronchial epithelial cell cultures compared to healthy controls.
