Cytokine levels and relative quantification of cytokine mRNA levels in lung tissues of BALB/c mice. (a) IL-17A levels per gram of lung tissue. (b) IL-10 levels per gram of lung tissue. (c) Relative quantification of IL-17A mRNA levels. (d) Relative quantification of IL-10 mRNA levels. Black bars, Group A mice; Grey bars, Group B mice; hatched bars, Group C mice; white bars, Group D mice. *p < 0.05, inoculate vs. Group D (control) by Dunnett multiple comparison statistical test, #p < 0.05 by Student’s t-test.
