Description

Although exposed to similar allergic and environmental stimuli, not all humans develop asthma. Similarly, mouse strains vary in the degree of pathophysiology seen following induction of experimental asthma. Three mouse strains (CBA/Ca, BALB/c, and C57BL/6) were used to determine if the extent and duration of inflammation influenced the degree of lung tissue damage in an OVA-induced allergic asthma model. Airways obstruction, leukocyte infiltration, edema, eosinophil accumulation, and...[Show more]
