Toll-like receptor 2 monoclonal antibody or/and Toll-like receptor 4 monoclonal antibody increase counts of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria in dextran sulfate sodium-induced colitis in mice.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIM The accurate pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis (UC) is not yet well understood.
