Figure 3

Inflammatory and antiviral proteins at 24 hours after RV-1B infection in healthy (n=10) and COPD (n=10) pBECs. (A) IL-6 protein induction after infection was significantly higher in COPD pBECs however (B) TNF-α induction was not significantly different between healthy and COPD pBECs. (C) IFN-λ1, (D) CCL-5 and (E) CXCL-10 protein induction in COPD pBECs was also significantly higher than that in healthy pBECs. Results are presented as mean and the error bar as standard error of the mean (SEM). * p<0.05 versus healthy RV infected pBECs.
