Figure 4. Phloretin (PT) effects on asthmatic lung tissue. Histological sections of lung tissues from normal (N) and OVA-stimulated (OVA) mice, without or with PT (PT5-20) treatment. (A) PT reduced eosinophil infiltration; eosinophils are indicated with arrows (hematoxylin and eosin stain; 200 × magnification). Amplification sections (400 × magnification) were shown for the indicated areas. (B) Scoring of inflammation via pathological evaluation of inflammatory cell infiltration in lung sections. (C) Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS)-stained lung sections show goblet cell hyperplasia; goblet cells are indicated with arrows (200 × magnification). (D) Results were expressed as the number of PAS-positive cells per 100 μm of basement membrane. All data are presented as the means ± SEM. *p < 0.05 compared to the OVA control group. **p < 0.01 compared to the OVA control group. Three independent experiments were analyzed and compared with the OVA-sensitive mice.
