Histological changes in mice with acute trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS) induced colitis after 7 days of treatment with mango mistletoe Dendrophthoe pentandra (MMDP) extract. A. Mice were sacrificed at the end of 7 days, and the colons were excised and fixed. Representative hematoxylin and eosin (H&E)-stained colonic sections of mice treated with or without the MMDP extract are shown. a: Mice were given untreated water as the control; b: Mice were given TNBS only; ce: Mice were treated with MMDP extract (150, 300, and 600 mg/kg) respectively are shown and the averages of each group are shown as horizontal bars (total, n = 6). f. Histological scores in colonic sections from each group stained with H&E are also shown. L: Gut Lumen, U: Ulcer, Arrow: inflammatory infiltrate. The groups are significantly different (**p < 0.001, magnification 200×)
