METHODS: Experimental colitis was induced with 1 mL trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS) in 40% ethanol by intracolonic administration with 8-cm-long cannula under ether anesthesia to rats in colitis group and colitis + black cumin oil group.
In this study a fraction containing the lactone sesquiterpene onopordopicrin (ONP) from Arctium lappa was administered orally as either 25mg/kg daily or 50mg/kg daily 48, 24 and 1 hour before the induction of colitis in rats by the administration of 2,4,6 trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS).
