Protective effect of Duzhong against MPTP-induced behavioral dysfunction on a mouse model of Parkinson’s disease. The time period from the final MPTP injection until the animal arrived on the floor (total locomotor activity) (a) was recorded with a limit of 30 s for the pole test. The traction test measured hind limb grip power (b). Total locomotor activity time was significantly prolonged, and strength on the traction test was decreased in MPTP-treated mice. Madopar and 600 mg/kg Duzhong significantly shortened the time to reach the platform and improved the hind limb grip score. ##p < 0.01 vs. control group, *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 vs. MPTP group, n = 8 animals/group
