Table 1 Cell composition in BAL

From: Repeated allergen exposure reduce early phase airway response and leukotriene release despite upregulation of 5-lipoxygenase pathways

  1. The number of cells in BAL fluid in non-sensitized, PBS-exposed, sensitized PBS-exposed sensitized single TMA-exposed and sensitized repeated TMA-exposed groups. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM, Mann-Whitney U test, n = 11-16. *p < 0.05 non-sensitized, PBS-exposed group versus sensitized groups. # p < 0.05 sensitized, PBS-exposed group versus sensitized, single TMA-exposed group. §p < 0.05 sensitized, repeated TMA-exposed versus single TMA-exposed group.
