Differential cell counts in bronchoalveolar lavage and histological analyses. Total numbers of macrophages, neutrophils, eosinophils and lymphocytes were determined in the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid, obtained immediately after lung function measurements (a). Next, lungs were isolated and slides of the lungs from mice with different lung diseases were prepared and colored with H&E-staining for analysis at a magnification of 50× and 200×, shown for naive control group (b), Bleo-fibrosis (c), PPE-emphysema (d), LPS-ALI (e) and HDM-asthma (f). Data are presented as mean ± SD. * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01 and *** p < 0.001 compared to the naive control group. n = 7 –8 per group
