Figure 2 : The effects of COEE on the atopic dermatitis score for the rostral skin of NC/Nga
mice under conventional conditions.

The scoring was performed at the start of the experiment and after 14 days of application. The values
represent the means±S.D. (n=3 in each SPF group, n=5 in each conventional group).
Control: not exposed to any topical preparation.
COEE: treated with a cream containing Corchorus olitorius leaf extract excluding high molecular weight
compounds.
BC: treated with the base cream, *: p<0.05 compared with the values at the start of the experiment
(Wilcoxon rank-sum test).
