Figure 1: Cumulative body weight during the dietary induction and after the EPI treatment. Results represent the mean ± SEM of the cumulative weekly body weight for each group (n = 8, in each), where ND = normal diet, ND+E = normal diet concomitant with 1 mg/kg EPI, PD = Paigen-like diet, PD+E = Paigen-like diet concomitant with 1 mg/kg EPI, and PD+E2 = Paigenlike diet after 2 weeks of EPI treatment. *p<0.05, vs. ND after Student’s t test for independent samples, +p<0.05, vs. PD after Student’s t test for independent samples, ^p<0.05, vs. PD after Student’s t test for paired samples.
