Figure 4

Bacterial overgrowth in the small intestinal lumen in IO rats. A tenfold increase of bacterial colony forming units (CFU) was seen in the intestinal lavage in IO rats compared to sham controls. Each data point in the figure represents the value from one animal, and the mean values of bacterial counts are shown as bars. n = 6/group. *p < 0.05 vs. sham rats.
