Infection with Hymenolepis diminuta Is More Effective than Daily Corticosteroids in Blocking Chemically Induced Colitis in Mice

Figure 1

Bar graphs showing that infection with H. diminuta 8 days prior to DNBS (ir., 2.5 mg), in contrast to 3 doses of dexamethosone (DEX), reduces the severity of colitis as gauged by (a) body weight, (b) colon length, (c) disease activity scores, and (d) histological damage scores (mean ± SEM; 𝑛 = 6–8 mice from 2 experiments; 𝑃 < . 0 5 compared to control).
