Table 1 OVA-induced food allergy model induces minor alterations on intestinal parameters

From: Food allergy enhances allergic asthma in mice

  CTRL OVA
Total transit time (mn) 185,10 ± 39,84 188,25 ± 54,31
Total fresh fecal pellet weight (mg) 145,67 ± 45,41 129,90 ± 56,73
% humidity of fecal pellet 73,65 ± 2,62 73,32 ± 3,25
Paracellular in vivo permeability (Fluo (AU)/μl plasma) 6,12 ± 1,60 7,73 ± 2,88*
Transcellular in vivo permeability (ng/ml) 403,60 ± 150,89 503,05 ± 268,98
Paracellular ex-vivo permeability in jejunum (sulfonic acid flux (slope)) 0,60 ± 0,34 1,43 ± 0,15*
Paracellular ex-vivo permeability in colon (sulfonic acid flux (slope)) 0,23 ± 0,04 0,18 ± 0,02
  1. Intestinal parameters including transit time, pellet weight and humidity and permeability were measured 30 minutes after the last challenge with OVA on day 29 in control (CTRL) and in OVA-induced food allergy (OVA) mice. *p<0.05.
