Correlation between colonic cytokine levels and body weight changes during acute colitis.

Changes in cytokine levels were correlated with the changes of body weight of individual mice. The value of the Pearson correlation coefficient (r2) is reported and significance is indicated by p value. Interleukin, IL; macrophage inflammatory protein, MIP; granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, G-CSF; granulocyte–macrophage colony-stimulating factor, GM-CSF; Control, C; control with oral enoxaparin, C+OE; control with intraperitoneal injection of enoxaparin, C+IPE; untreated colitis, DSS; colitis with oral enoxaparin, DSS+OE; colitis with intraperitoneal injection of enoxaparin, DSS+IPE.
