Evaluation of intestinal injury in rats with necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). (a) Representative electron microscopy images of the ileocecum in rats with or without NEC (40x). Control: ; NEC: . (b) RT-qPCR assays showed that TNF-α and IL-1β levels were significantly higher in the ileocecum tissues of NEC rats than the control rats. The results are expressed as . .
