The Compatible Solute Ectoine Reduces the Exacerbating Effect of Environmental Model Particles on the Immune Response of the Airways
Effect of ectoine treatment on inflammatory mediators 12 h after exposure. (a) BAL analyses of two animals from each group. Given error bars are based on duplicates from both measurements. Significant values cannot be calculated. (b) IL-6 in BAL of 5 animals; (c) IL-6 in serum of 5 animals. CNP, 5 mg/kg carbon nanoparticles; E, 1 mM ectoine. Significant values (two sided) in (b) and (c) were calculated by Mann-Whitney -test.
