  • The present study investigates the effect of Chang Run Tong (CRT) on the biomechanical and morphometrical remodeling of colon and rectum in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. The colonic and rectal segments were obtained from diabetic (DM), CRT-treated diabetic (T1, high dosage: 50 g/kg/day; T2, low dosage: 25 g/kg/day) and normal (Con) rats. The experimental period was 60 d. The blood glucose level and body weight were measured. The circumferential length, wall thickness, and opening angle… CONTINUE READING
