Rikkunshito Ameliorates Cancer Cachexia Partly through Elevation of Glucarate in Plasma

Figure 4

Glucarate treatment reduced ascites content and improved skeletal muscle atrophy. Effect of glucarate on whole body weight (a), body weight without ascites (b), content of ascites (c), and gastrocnemius muscle (d) at day 7. The weight of gastrocnemius muscle was normalized to initial body weight (IBW). Data represent mean ± SD (–12). ; by unpaired Student’s t-test versus control. by Dunnett’s test versus vehicle control.
