Figure 1: Oral administration of Argyreia speciosa extract before HCl treatment reduces the number of total inflammatory cells as well as neutrophils in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. Mice treated as explained in materials and methods section were subjected to bronchoalveolar lavage and cells obtained were differentially stained for counting total cells (a) and neutrophils. (b) Supernatant of bronchoalveolar lavage was assessed for total protein content. (c) Results are depicted as mean ± standard error of the mean. ***significant w.r.t. control, P < 0.001; ###significant w.r.t. HCl, P < 0.001; ##significant w.r.t. HCl, P < 0.01 #significant w.r.t. HCl, P < 0.05
