After a week for acclimatization at six-week-old, the ob/ob mice were randomly divided into the ob/ob group (saline, 50mg/kg daily by gastrogavage) and the sitagliptin treatment group (ob/ob + Sita) (sitagliptin, 50 mg/kg daily, by gastrogavage), and the WT groups were given the equivalent dose of saline, 8 in each group, all were treated for 4 weeks [26].
Twelve-week-old male SHRs and age-matched normotensive WKY rats were housed and fed for 1 week and randomly divided into 7 groups (n = 10) for treatment: puerarin-treated SHRs and WKY rats, intraperitoneal injection of 100 mg/kg puerarin in 0.3 mL of vehicle (20% propanediol) every day for 14 days; vehicle-treated SHRs and WKY, the same volume (20%) of propanediol injected every day for 14 days; age-matched control SHRs and WKY rats, rats housed and fed routinely for 14 days; and nimodipine, SHRs receiving 30 mg/kg nimodipine by gastrogavage every day for 14 days.
In the present study, a total of 36 rats were selected in which 12 rats of both sexes were treated with a low dose (2 gm/Kg) and 12 rats were treated via a gastrogavage with a high dose (4 gm/Kg) of an antibiofilm extract from the novel bacterial species of Paenibacillus strain 139SI at a concentration of 4500 [micro]g/mL for a duration of 14 days.
