Effect of rapamycin on the histological findings, inflammatory cell counts, and cytokine levels in BALF from asthmatic mice treated with 50 mg/kg ketamine. (a, b) H&E-stained lung histology (magnification, ×200) and histopathological score. (c, d) PAS-stained lung histology (magnification, ×200) and quantification of PAS-positive cells. (e) Inflammatory cell counts in BALF. (f) Cytokine levels in BALF. Data are expressed as the mean ± SD of six mice per group. , , and versus the OVA groups; , , and versus the OVA+Ket50group.
