Short-chain fatty acids, especially butyrate, have various biological activities including inhibition of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α secretion, via attenuation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) activation. Here, we evaluated the protective effect of oral administration of tributyrin, a prodrug of butyrate, on
