Moreover, the beneficial effect of AFC in the colitic
mice could also be associated with the normalization of the expression of MUC-2 and ZO-1, which are important for the intestinal epithelial integrity.

To prepare colitis in wild-type mice, the mice were randomly divided into 5 groups: normal control and TNBS-induced colitic
control groups treated with vehicle, neomangiferin (10 or 20 mg/kg), or sulfasalazine (50 mg/kg).

mucosa that are sessile and have distinct borders and a smooth, dome-shaped surface are referred to as adenoma-like dysplastic polyps.
2011) has investigated soyasaponin Ab anti-inflammatory effects in 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitic
mice and LPS-stimulated peritoneal macrophages, and the authors concluded that soyasaponin Ab may ameliorate colitis by inhibiting the binding of LPS to TLR4 on macrophages.
