  1. Analysis of histological parameters was performed as described in Methods. aStatistically significant difference between control and dextran sulphate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis groups (P <0.05). b Statistically significant difference between acute DSS-induced colitis and chronic DSS-induced colitis groups (P <0.05)
