SI and TI represent the spleen and thymus indices, respectively. The normal group was administered with normal saline s.c. and water orally. The model group was administered with D-galactose (120 mg/kg, s.c.) and water orally. The positive control group was administered with D-galactose (120 mg/kg, s.c.) and vitamin C (100 mg/kg) orally. The APCT group was administered with D-galactose (120 mg/kg, s.c.) and APCT (100, 200, and 400 mg/kg) orally. All drugs were administered for 45 d. The values shown are the mean ± SD of 10 mice. *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01 versus the model group.
