Table 1

The extent of lung inflammation were analyzed by microscopical histopathologic scoring 24 h after intrartracheal challenge with P. aeruginosa
Treatment group No. of mice with the following lung pathology score/total no. of mice (%) Lungabscess incidence
1+2 3 4 (%)
Control 9/10(90) 1/10(10) 0 0
OVA 3/10(30) 6/10(60) 1/10(10) 10
OVA/P.a 0 7/10(70) 3/10(10) 30
ONA/BUD 7/10(70) 3/10(30) 0 0
OVA/BUD/P.a 0 3/10(30) 7/10(60)** 70**

The cellular infiltration scoring of OVA/Bud mice was lower than that in OVA. The scoring of OVA/Bud/P. a mice was higher than that in OVA/P. a *p<0.001 compared to OVA; **p<0.001 compared to OVA/.a.
