Number of total apoptotic immunoreactive cells in ileum villi. Figure 6A shows the number of total apoptotic positive cells in both groups analyzed as a bar diagram. Significant statistical differences were found between controls and mannoprotein group. Figure 6B shows immunohistochemical location of apoptotic cells in Ileum villi in control. Figure 6C shows immunohistochemical location of apoptotic cells in Ileum villi in mannoprotein. Arrows indicate proliferative positive cells predominantly located in apical. Photomomicrographs in original magnification 20x. Error bars represent the standard deviations. * Significant at p < 0.05 compared with control group.
