Figure 1: Cordyceps militaris grown on germinated soybeans (GSC) extract attenuated the severity of DSS-induced acute colitis. (a) Survival curves of mice administered with the vehicle, DSS, and DSS + GSC extracts. (b) Change of body weight was measured. Statistical significance was assessed compared with control mice ( versus control; versus DSS). (c) Disease activity index (DAI) score was monitored daily ( per group). Data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation (SD) ( per group). (d) Colon length of each mouse was measured. ( versus control; versus DSS). DSS: dextran sulfate sodium; CM: Cordyceps militaris; GS: germinated soybeans; GSC: Cordyceps militaris grown on germinated soybeans.
