Wallace’s Score

Evaluation of Inflammation at the Macroscopic Level

  Mean sem p
TNBS + Vehicle 6.16 0.23
TNBS + AFP 200µg/day iv 3.67 0.44 < 0.0001
TNBS + mouse anti-TNFα 0.1mg ip 3.93 0.34 < 0.0001

In our control treatment group the mouse anti-TNFα induces a significant decrease of inflammation compared to colitic mice receiving the vehicle, validating the model.

A significant decrease of the inflammation at the macroscopic level was observed with AFP at 200µg/mouse/day administered by iv injection.

Ameho’s Score

Evaluation of Inflammation at the Histological Level

  Mean sem p
TNBS + Vehicle 5.26 0.21
TNBS + AFP 200µg/day iv 2.94 0.46 0.00006
TNBS + mouse anti-TNFα 0.1mg ip 4.33 0.44 0.036

Good correlation between the macroscopic and histological scores showing a significant improvement of inflammation. Greater anti-inflammatory effect is observed with AFP compared to anti-TNFα.

Quantification of MPO

  Mean sem p
TNBS + Vehicle 40.72 0.64
TNBS + AFP 200µg/day iv 25.42 4.22 0.00062223
TNBS + mouse anti-TNFα 0.1mg ip 29.59 3.11 1.631E-005

Significant decrease of MPO level in the colon, in correlation with macroscopic score and histological score indicating a reduced number of pro-inflammatory cells in the colon.

Evaluation of Gene Expression of Pro- and Anti-Inflammatory Cytokines in the Colon

Significant decrease of pro-inflammatory cytokines with AFP. Similar decrease compared to mouse anti-TNFα. Significant increase of anti-inflammatory cytokine IL10 at mRNA level.
