Results are expressed in individual values and the mean value is represented by the horizontal black line; B: Histological evaluation and scoring of the colon was performed according to the Ameho criteria. The individual scores of the mice in the two groups are provided, with the mean value being represented by the horizontal line; C: Representative section of score 6 from the control fed mice [-Lacto-Wolfberry (LWB)]; D: Representative section of score 1 from LWB fed mice (+LWB); E: Colonic myeloperoxidase (MPO) levels were measured by enzyme linked immunosorbant assay. The values are represented as mean ± SE. aP < 0.05 vs -LWB.
