Abstract

  Clostridium difficile associated colitis is mediated by its toxins A and B and results in recruitment of immune cells to the intestinal mucosa. Subsets of immune cells have previously been shown to be differentially susceptible to toxin A. However, there is little research on their interactions with toxin B.
