Abstract: Purpose Lactobacillus acidophilus is widely used for gastrointestinal disorders, but its role in inflammatory con- ditions like in chemotherapy-induced mucositis is unclear. Here, we report the effect of L. acidophilus on 5-fluoroura- cil-induced (5-FU) intestinal mucositis in mice. Methods Mice weighing 25–30 g ( n = 8) were separated into three groups, saline, 5-FU, and 5-FU + L. acidophilus (5-FU-La) (16 × 10 9 CFU/kg). In the 5-FU-La group, L. acidophilus was administered concomitantly with 5-FU on the first day and alone for two additional days. Three days after the last administration of L. acidophilus , the animals were euthanized and the jejunum and ileum were removed for histopathological assessment and for evaluation of lev- els of myeloperoxidase activity, sulfhydryl groups, nitrite, and cytokines (TNF- α , IL-1 β , CXCL-1, and IL-10). In addition, we investigated gastric emptying using spectro- photometry after feeding a 1.5-ml test meal by gavage and euthanasia. Data were submitted to ANOVA and Bonfer - roni’s test, with the level of significance at p < 0.05. Results Intestinal mucositis induced by 5-FU significantly ( p < 0.05) reduced the villus height–crypt depth ratio and GSH concentration and increased myeloperoxidase activ- ity and the nitrite concentrations compared with the control group. Furthermore, 5-FU significantly ( p < 0.05) increased cytokine (TNF- α , IL-1 β , and CXCL-1) concentrations and decreased IL-10 concentrations compared with the con- trol group. 5-FU also significantly ( p < 0.05) delayed gas- tric emptying and gastrointestinal transit compared with the control group. All of these changes were significantly ( p < 0.05) reversed by treatment with L. acidophilus. Conclusions Lactobacillus acidophilus improves the inflammatory and functional aspects of intestinal mucositis induced by 5-FU.
