In conclusion, GM appear to contribute to intestinal inflammation and UC activity and reduction of these cells by GMA should benefit patients with active UC. Further, the correlations among calprotectin, UC activities, and PB neutrophils should serve as the basis for preemptive actions to control this disease.
