ISS-ODN-stimulated and OVA-loaded Mφ (ISS-ODN/OVA-Mφ) significantly suppress airway eosinophilia and IL-5 levels in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. The number of eosinophils (eo), neutrophils (neutro) and mononuclear cells (MNC) in the BALF (A), and IL-5 levels in the BALF (B) after OVA inhalation challenge. Values are expressed as the mean ± SEM (n = 6 to 8). *P < .01 and †
P < .05 compared with sham-treated mice. ‡
