ABSTRACT
The article investigates the synergistic effects of systemic trefoil factor peptides TFF1 and EGF and epidermal growth factor in a rat model of colitis. The study showed that TFF1-Cys and EGF had synergistic activity in the in vitro assay. Treatment with TFF1 alone reduced colitis score by 22%. Systemic administration TFF1 reduces dextran sulphate sodium induced colitis and Cys is important in this effect, probably by allowing dimerisation. Synergistic effects were seen when co-administered with EGF.
