Figure 1: Treatment with T. lecticularia SGE improves clinical outcome in mice exposed to DSS. Intestinal inflammation was induced by free consumption of drinking water containing 3% DSS for 6 consecutive days. Mice were treated i.p. with 100 μl of saline or T. lecticularia SGE (3, 10, or 30 μg/animal/day) as depicted in the figure (arrows). The clinical disease score (a), weight variation (b), overall clinical score (c), postmortem score (d), and accumulated score (e) were recorded during the disease development or at the day of euthanasia. Results are representative of two independent experiments ( mice/group). .
