Figure 1: Effect of CBS on body weight and disease activity index of mice. (a) Body weight change; (b) disease activity index; and (c) colon length. Colitis was induced by administration with 5% dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) for 7 d. CBS (50 and 150 mg/kg) was administered daily for 7 d, respectively. Disease progression was monitored daily by observation of body weight change, disease activity index, and colon length change. Data are presented as mean ± SD of eight mice per group. versus control, versus DSS alone.
