The sentence in the abstract that reads “Melamine-induced toxicity in rats was attenuated, and melamine excretion decreased after antibiotic suppression of gut microbial activity” is incorrect. The correct sentence should read “Melamine-induced toxicity in rats was attenuated and melamine excretion increased after antibiotic suppression of gut microbial activity.”
