Quantitative immunohistomorphological microscopic analysis was performed by counting the GLP-1R immunoreactive and nonimmunoreactive glandular cells using Mac Biophotonic ImageJ (a Java program inspired by National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA) in a minimum of 10 well-oriented high-quality longitudinal cuts of gastric glands. Frequency of GLP-1R immunoreactive cells was determined separately in neck, mid, and bottom gland areas.
