 BioMatrix Support Mucosa - Healing the gut, intestinal barrier
The mucosal barrier—your first-line immune defense—refers to all of the mucous membranes that comprise the primary interface between the external environment and the internal environment of the body.
Support Mucosa is specifically formulated to accelerate repair of the mucosal barrier of the gut wall, restoring healthy form and function to damaged tissue.
As a result, substances such as allergens and parasites cannot readily bind to the mucosa, toxins are oxidized, and free radicals are eliminated.

 RFA-DE-05-002: DEVELOPMENT OF IN VITRO MODELS OF HUMAN ORAL MUCOSA RELEVANT TO AIDS AND MUCOSAL INFECTIONS   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The oral mucosa is composed of both stratified and non-stratified epithelial cells which form a continuously renewing, protective 100 um layer in the mouth.
The surface of the mucosa is covered by salivary carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, and interacts directly with the oral environment, containing bacteria, fungi, viruses, food, tobacco products, alcohol etc. In addition, the mucosa produces or is bathed by cytokines, chemokines, antibodies and innate host factors in saliva.
Research on identifying protective or susceptibility factors in the oral mucosa in persons exposed to HIV would be greatly facilitated by the availability of high quality, standardized, and reproducible in vitro models of the mucosal tissue.

 NIH Guide: ORAL MUCOSA AND HIV INFECTION
The oral mucosa differs from other mucosal surfaces in that it is generally thicker, composed of both keratinizing and non-keratinizing stratified squamous epithelial cells, and bathed in saliva.
Yet how the oral mucosa resists HIV infection while serving as a portal for many other types of viruses such as Epstein-Barr virus or human papillomavirus is undetermined and requires further research Thus far, only a few studies suggest that oral epithelial cells may be infected with and harbor HIV.
Emphasis must be placed on defining the potential barrier function of the oral mucosa, identifying properties of this mucosal surface that differ from those of the vagina and rectum, and determine if differences in mucosal properties are related to enhanced or diminished infection by HIV.

 Nuclear Medicine Imaging of the Gastrointestinal System - Ectopic Gastric Mucosa
A Meckel's diverticulum is a pathologic sacculation of the ileum, usually about 2 to 6 cm in length, derived from the persistence of the omphalomesenteric (embryonic vitelline) duct at the point where it joined the ileum, about 50 to 100 cm from the ileocecal valve.
Most Meckel's diverticula are lined with ileal mucosa, but a little less than half are lined with an ectopic mucosa.
The nuclear medicine procedure to detect the presence of a Meckel's diverticulum that contains functioning gastric mucosa is based upon the observation that Tc-99m pertechnetate is concentrated and secreted by the mucus secretory cells of gastric mucosa, both normal and ectopic.

 What Does The Ridged Mucosa Do?
The ridged mucosa is a highly vascular zone of specialized sensory tissue containing a dense concentration of specialized erotogenic nerve receptors.
The unfolding and refolding of the ridged mucosa over the glans allows all the erotogenic nerve endings to be stimulated, increasing sexual pleasure.
The last segment of the internal foreskin is the smooth mucosa, which extends from the last ridge of the ridged mucosa to the point of attachment at the coronal sulcus.
