Glutathione reductase (a), glutathione peroxidase (b), glutathione S-transferase (c), and catalase (d) activities in lungs. Values represent means ± SEM. Ctrl: control; animals received an intranasal instillation of 10  L saline solution and were treated orally with 100  L of cashew nut oil (CNO). DEP: diesel exhaust particles; intranasal instillation of 50  g DEP/10  L of saline and treated orally with 100  L of CNO. DA50: intranasal instillation of 50  g DEP/10  L of saline and treated orally with 50 mg/kg of AAs. DA150: intranasal instillation of 50  g DEP/10  L of saline and treated orally with 150 mg/kg of AAs. DA250: intranasal instillation of 50  g DEP/10  L of saline and treated orally with 250 mg/kg of AAs. relative to Ctrl. relative to DEP. relative to Ctrl. relative to DEP.
