Small intestine from control (a), 5-Fu (b), 5-Fu + loperamide (c), and 5-Fu + CS aqueous extract at 20 g/kg (d) was prepared for H&E sections. Morphological assessment was performed using the image analysis program of Nikon Nis-element, and villus shortening was calculated by the average villus-to-crypts ratio (e) to evaluate the mucosal damage. Each bar represents the mean ± SEM ( /group); .
