Table 1: Effects of AHCC feeding on body and spleen weight of stressed mice.

Treatment Groupsa Initial Body Weightb Body Weight At day 24 of stress Weight Gain in % Average Spleen Weight (g)
AHCC-fed Non-stressed 17.3 ± 1.4 21.7 ± 0.4 25.4% 0.1042 ± 0.01
AHCC-fed Stressed 17.4 ± 0.5 21.1 ± 0.3 21.6% 0.0963 0.004
PBS-fed Non-stressed 18.46 ± 1.6 20.96 ± 0.6 13.5% 0.1495 0.100
PBS-fed stressed 18.85 ± 1.6 22.4 ± 0.5 19.4% 0.0936 0.11

aTreatment groups are stressed or non-stressed mice-receiving active hexose correlated compound or phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) by gavage for seven days before sacrifice.

bBody weight of each mouse in grams was measured every day during feeding. Mice were sacrificed seven days after feeding and weight of spleens was determined. Statistical differences between treatment groups were compared at the level of (p < 0.05).
