Plant Proteinase Inhibitor BbCI Modulates Lung Inflammatory Responses and Mechanic and Remodeling Alterations Induced by Elastase in Mice

Figure 3

(a) Mean and SE of respiratory system elastance (Ers) of all experimental groups. ELA group was greater than control groups , and ELABC had a reduction compared to ELA . (b) Mean and SE of respiratory system resistance (Rrs) in all animals. Animals that received BbCI (SALBC and ELABC) had a decrease in comparison to SAL . (c) Mean and SE of airway resistance (Raw) of four experimental groups. Animals that received elastase (ELA) had greater values than SAL and SALBC groups . The treatment with proteinase inhibitor (ELABC) attenuated this increase . (d) Mean and SE of tissue elastance (Htis) of all animals. Animals that received elastase (ELA) had greater values than SAL and SALBC groups . The treatment with BbCI (ELABC) attenuated this increase . (e) Mean and SE of lung tissue damping (Gtis) of all experimental groups. There were no significant differences among groups.
