The chronic DSS-induced colitis model was established. a, c Body weight (BW) was assessed daily and expressed as percentage of baseline BW. b, d Disease activity index (DAI), consisting of BW loss, stool consistency and OB, was measured daily. The DSS + vehicle group (b) showed more severe inflammation in the colon compared to the control group a, while the inflammation in the colon in the DSS + MSCs group was ameliorated. e Samples of colon. f Colon length. g Morphology score. h H&E staining (× 200). i Histological score (aP < 0.05 vs. the DSS + vehicle group; bP < 0.05 vs. the control group). Data were expressed as mean ± SD
