Gut integrity as determined by FITC-dextran permeability and Trans-Epithelial Resistance (TER). FITC-dextran concentrations in plasma (A) and relative TER across Caco-2 cells exposed to caecal water during the 24-hour exposure period (B) and at 24 hours after exposure (C). Dot plots with means indicated by horizontal lines (A and C) and mean values with SEM for groups CON (blue circles), XOS (green squares), BIF (red triangles) as well as water (grey circle) and cell media control (black squares) are shown (B).
