NF- B Inhibition after Cecal Ligation and Puncture Reduces Sepsis-Associated Lung Injury without Altering Bacterial Host Defense

Figure 5

Inhibition of NF- B does not affect bacterial clearance after CLP. Bacterial colony counts in mice subjected to CLP+BMS and CLP+vehicle were assessed on samples from (a) blood ( per group), (b) lung tissue ( per group), and (c) peritoneal fluid ( per group) obtained at 24 hours after CLP. -axis represents different groups and -axis represents log scale for bacterial colony counts isolated from different sites. Results were represented as mean ± SE.
