I wonder if I am reading the data from the experiment correctly. ? For the JEJUNUM, I see the VH/CD ratio of the DON+treatment is worse than the DON alone group and the negative impract (7,8 -> 7,4) is much larger than from DON alone (7,9 -> 7,8); If my interpretation would be correct, than this is very bad, since it looks that the product is aggravating the situation. Also in the DUODENUM there is no significant difference between DON alone and DON + product. And a negative effect on the CD is a bad indication (inflammation) What about the effects on ILEUM, which is of course the most important segment of the small intestine ? From our multiple trial work at many institutes and universities, it looks like that only the absorbent is having some limited effect, the other ingredients not.
