  1. Data were analyzed by Nonparametric Mann-Whitney U-test and expressed as mean ± STD. Lm: linear intercept; Am: mean alveolar surface; DI: destructive index; NS: normal saline-treated smoke-exposed mice; Decoy: decoy NF-κB ODNs-treated smoke-exposed mice; Scr: scrambled ODNs-treated smoke-exposed mice. n = 8
