Figure 2: Effect of Antrocaryon micraster extract on colon weight-to-length ratio in rat acetic acid-induced colitis. Rats received 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 method. Colons were removed after 24 h and the weights and lengths taken. Data are presented as mean ± standard error of mean (n = 5). **P < 0.01 compared to the acetic acid control group (AA); ##P < 0.01 compared to the naive group (one-way analysis of variance followed by Dunnett's post hoc test). NS not statistically different
