Virgin Coconut Oil Supplementation Prevents Airway Hyperreactivity of Guinea Pigs with Chronic Allergic Lung Inflammation by Antioxidant Mechanism
Inflammatory cell infiltrate in lung (a), epithelial hyperplasia (b), and thickness of airway smooth muscle layer (c) of guinea pigs of Ctrl, Asth, Asth+Dexa, Asth+VCO1, Asth+VCO2, and Asth+VCO4 groups. The columns and vertical bars represent the mean and S.E.M., respectively (). One-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s post-test: (Ctrl vs. other groups); (Asth vs. other groups); (Asth+Dexa vs. Asth+VCO1 or Asth+VCO2); (Asth+VCO1 vs. Asth+VCO2 or Asth+VCO4) and (Asth+VCO2 vs. Asth+VCO4).
