Figure 2: Effect of DEC treatment on histological alterations in lung after carrageenan-induced injury; (A)-(A1) lung sections taken from mice with carrageenan-induced pleurisy demonstrated tissue injury as evidenced in edema, cellularity enhancement, and polymorphonuclear infiltration. (B)-(B1) Treatment with DEC three days prior to pleurisy demonstrated reduced lung injury and PMN infiltration. The figure is representative of at least 3 experiments performed on different experimental days. mice for each group; scale bar = 100 μm and 20 μm.
