Abstract

Oxidative stress plays a role in disease initiation and progression in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and manipulation of this pathway may attenuate disease progress. In this study, the effect of exopolysaccharide (EPS)-producing probiotic bacteria on gut oxidative damage was evaluated in a rat model of experimental colitis.
