From: Cx3cr1CreERT2-driven Atg7 deletion in adult mice induces intestinal adhesion

Grade Criteria for inflammation score
Inflammation
 0 Occasional inflammatory cells in the lamina propria
 1 Increased number of inflammatory cells in the lamina propria
 2 Confluence of inflammatory cells extending into the submucosa
 3 Transmural extension of the inflammatory cells
Tissue damage
 0 No mucosal damage
 1 Lymphoepithelial lesion
 2 Surface mucosal erosion or focal ulceration, intestine wall thickening
 3 Extensive mucosal damage and extension into deeper structure
