Effects of aging on endotoxin levels in young and aged mice. a Body weight (g) and epididymal fat pad weight (mg/g of body weight) of male C57BL/6 J mice (4 and 18 months old) were measured. b The fecal endotoxin concentration per gram (EU/g of feces) and plasma endotoxin concentration per mL (EU/mL) were measured using the Limulus amebocyte lysate assay. All values are indicated as the mean ± standard error of the mean (n = 8). *, p < 0.05 in comparison with young mice. YM, young mice; AM, aged mice
