Table 2 Indices of oxidative stress (with standard deviations) in the ileum mucosa in mice challenged with S. Typhimurium and treated with ofloxacin and/or the probiotic L. fermentum ME-3

From: Eradication of Salmonella Typhimurium infection in a murine model of typhoid fever with the combination of probiotic Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 and ofloxacin
