T-cell infiltrates as a result of chronic aspiration of gastric fluid. Relative T cell quantities in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) specimens following aspiration of either gastric fluid or normal saline are shown. Left:right lung T cell quantities were substantially higher in BAL specimens from rats receiving gastric fluid compared to rats receiving normal saline after 4, 8, 12, and 16 weeks of aspiration. p < 0.10, ***p < 0.001 based on two-tailed Student's t test.
