Protection of elastin by PGG from elastase challenge ex vivo. A Concentration dependent elastase inhibition with PGG, as determined using AAAPVN assay. B % tissue weight loss in control and PGG fixed mouse lung samples. C Elastin quantification in control and PGG fixed lung samples following elastase challenge. DE phenol stain of histological sections of control and PGG fixed lungs where PGG stains black. Scale bar- 50 microns. *p < 0.05 **p < 0.01 ***p < 0.001
