Table 1 Parameters of mice from Control and HFD groups receiving chow and high fat diet, respectively or Colitis and Colitis + HFD groups, receiving the respective diets and treated with 2 cycles of DSS (3%) to induce ulcerative colitis

From: The combination of high-fat diet-induced obesity and chronic ulcerative colitis reciprocally exacerbates adipose tissue and colon inflammation
