Figure 1: Effect of Antrocaryon micraster extract on serum levels of Tumor necrosis factor alpha and IL-6. Rats received daily administration of either normal saline, sulphasalazine 500 mg/kg, or Antrocaryon micraster extract (30, 100, and 300 mg/kg p.o) for 3 days. Colitis was induced as described in the methods. Blood samples were obtained after 24 h and the sera assayed for levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha (panel a) and IL-6 (panel b). Data are presented as mean ± standard error of mean (n = 5). *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01 compared to acetic acid control group (AA); ###P < 0.001 compared to naïve control (one-way analysis of variance followed by Dunnett's post hoc test)
