Protective effect of Curdione on pulmonary fibrosis. a H&E staining analysis for the severity of lung injury in mice after BLM induction. b, c Masson and Sirius red staining analysis for the severity of lung fibrosis in mice following BLM induction. Images were taken under original magnification × 40 (Up) and × 100(Down). d A bar graph showing the semiquantitative ashcroft scores for the severity of fibrosis. e Body weight change during the course of BLM-induced fibrosis. f The rates of hydroxyproline and lung wet weight of all mice studied. Twelve mice were included in each study group. Experimental results were expressed as mean ± standard deviation. The data were analysed by one-way ANOVA. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01
