  1. aSingle p.o. application of 10 ml of either saline or POE-POP at Day 0; 5 pigs per group were euthanatized and sampled at Day 35 of the experiment. bNo. of the cells per μm2 of randomly selected 12 microscopic fields (average area of digital image field was 71.168,87 μm2) in each of 5 serial sections of mid ileum per pig. cIncrease (+) or decrease (−) of the mean values in treated pigs vs. the mean values in control pigs (1.0 or 100%). Values differ significantly at *p < 0.05 or ** p < 0.01.
