Figure 4: Effect of Antrocaryon micraster extract on microscopic injury in acetic acid-induced colitis in rats. Sprague Dawley 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 photomicrographs obtained at ×400 (a). 1: Naive control, 2: Colitic control, 3: Sulphasalazine 500 mg/kg, 4-6: 30, 100, 300 mg/kg Antrocaryon micraster extract, respectively, and quantified for extent of microscopic injury (b). Data are presented as mean ± standard error of mean (n = 5). **P < 0.01 and ***P < 0.001 compared to the acetic acid control group (AA); ####P < 0.001 compared to the naive group. (One-way analysis of variance followed by Dunnett's post hoc test). Scale bar represents 200 µm of tissue
