Effects of the oral PEDV challenge and administration of the MYCI mixture on intestinal morphology of newborn piglets (100× magnification). Newborn piglets received a challenge with 3 × 103.5TCID50 of PEDV in PBS or PBS only and daily administration of 60 mg of the MYCI mixture suspended in milk replacer or the vehicle for 7 days. Note the atrophied and fused villi as well as crypt hyperplasia in the challenged/control group and the alleviation of the atrophy and fusion of the villi and the crypt hyperplasia in the challenged/MYCI group compared with the morphology in the former. Only representative results are shown in this figure
