Figure 1: MAG-DHA and MAG-EPA reduce airway inflammation in ovalbumin (OVA)-sensitized lung tissue. A-D: Representative lung tissue sections obtained from a non-sensitized guinea pig (control) (A) as well as from OVA-sensitized (B), OVA-sensitized + MAG-DHAtreated (C) and OVA-sensitized + MAG-EPA-treated animals (D). The degree of inflammation was assessed by determining the extent of inflammatory infiltrates present in lung sections stained with Hematoxylin-Eosin. Scale bar 40 Ám. Images are representative of n = 8, 10, 11 and 8 (animals, experiments) per group, respectively. E: Total leukocytes, eosinophils (Eos.) and lymphocytes (Lymph.) in BAL fluid were enumerated and identified after Wright-Giemsa staining. Results are expressed as mean ▒ SEM, (n = 7 per group), * P < 0.05.
