Core Tip Aqueous rhubarb extract partially improved selected parameters of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-induced intestinal mucositis in rats. Exposure to 5-FU decreased bodyweight, yet high-dose rhubarb extract (RE) and low-dose RE (ldr) showed no changes. myeloperoxidase activity was significantly decreased in rats treated with LDR and 5-FU when compared to the intestinal mucositis control group. Ileal mucosal thickness was significantly improved (19%) in animals with intestinal mucositis and treated with LDR. In xenopus oocytes expressing AQP4 water channels, RE blocked swelling induced by a decrease in external osmotic pressure which indicated that water influx across the epithelial barrier was selectively blocked by RE.
