Effects of Chitosan on Intestinal Inflammation in Weaned Pigs Challenged by Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli

Figure 1

Changes in diarrhea index in piglets.

Piglets challenged by enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli were fed either a control diet (A group, n = 10), or control diet plus chlortetracycline (B group, n = 10) or control diet plus chitosan (C group, n = 10) for 21 days. Diarrhea index (%) was calculated as 100× number of piglets that had diarrhea/total number of piglets.
