Determination of interleukin (IL)-10 plasma concentrations in mice. Plasma samples from bleomycin (BLM)-treated and Treg-transferred mice were collected by cardiac punctures on day 28 after initiating BLM administration, after which their IL-10 levels were measured by ELISA. Plasma IL-10 concentrations significantly increased by up to 3.0-fold after BLM-treatment. This increase was reversed to basal levels by the adoptive transfer of Tregs. *P < 0.05. n = 5 mice/group. NC; normal control
