Si-Jun-Zi Decoction Treatment Promotes the Restoration of Intestinal Function after Obstruction by Regulating Intestinal Homeostasis

Figure 1

Si-Jun-Zi Decoction treatment reduces intestinal mucosal injury. (a) and (b): intestinal segments from the ileum were excised and fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde and embedded in paraffin blocks. We stained 4 μm thick sections with H&E. Intestinal mucous membrane damage and Chiu’s histopathological score were evaluated. The H&E staining (a) and the damage score (b) are shown. In panel (c), the serum level of D-lactate is shown. In panel (d), the level of intestinal mucins, examined by Coomassie brilliant blue G250 staining, is shown. The data are representative of three independent experiments, with each using 6 mice per group. Data are shown as mean ± SD. ( , ).
