Figure 3: Adoptive transfer of dendritic cells expressing FasL (FasLDCs) attenuates macroscopic and microscopic damage in an acute colitis model. A. timeline for adoptive transfer and acute colitis induction protocol. B. Weight change in colitic rats that received either FasL-DCs or dendritic cells transfected with an empty vector (EV-DCs), expressed as percent of the initial weight on the day of colitis induction (day 0). C. Macroscopic damage scores for rats treated with FasL-DCs or EV-DCs. D. Microscopic damage scores for rats treated with FasL-DCs or EV-DCs. n=2 rats per group. #p<0.05 vs day 0 of same group; *p<0.05 vs EV-DC group.
