Figure 2

Main results of the animal experiment after sacrificed at the 24 weeks. A. The morphology of normal colon in macroscopic observation (Upper) and microscopy (HE stained) (Lower). Neither signs of injury nor tumor were found in NS group and cFA group. B. The morphology of colon adenocacinoma in macroscopic observation (Upper) and microscopy (HE stained) (Lower). C. The incidences of DMH-induced colorectal tumor in different groups. DMH group is 90%, which is much higher than any other groups such as FA2, FA3 which are 63%, 45% respectively. Meanwhile, there is none in NS and cFA group. D. Maximum diameter of tumor among the 5 groups (NS, cFA, DMH, FA1 and FA2). E. Tumor number in mice among the above 5 groups. (a: P < 0.05, FA3 and FA2 compared to DMH group; b: P < 0.05, FA2 compared to FA3 group)
