Abstract Title: 

Lentinan administration relieves gut barrier dysfunction induced by rotavirus in a weaned piglet model.

Abstract: 

Rotavirus (RV) is a pathogen that induces severe diarrhea in infants and young animals. Shiitake mushroom is a traditional food, which can improve physiological function, including gut health. Lentinan (LNT) is the main functional component of Shiitake mushroom. This study aimed to verify whether LNT administration could improve intestinal barrier function, thereby decreasing RV-induced diarrhea in a porcine model. According to initial weight and origin, a total of 28 weaned piglets were randomly fed 2 diets containing 0 or 84 mg kg-1 LNT for 19 d (n = 14). On day 15, RV was orally infused to half of the pigs in each group. RV-induced diarrhea (P
