Relationship of MFG-E mRNA expression with the presence/degree of fibrosis in CP (A). Comparison of MFG-E8 mRNA expression of human pancreatic stellate cells, isolated from pancreatic tissue of patients with chronic pancreatitis compared to CP tissue as such (B). Comparison of MFG-E8 expression in hPSCs 48 hours after stimulation with 10 ng/ml and 100 ng/ml fractalkine compared to unstimulated hPSCs (C). Data are expressed as mean ± standard error of the mean (SEM).
