Effect of Cymbopogon citratus on leukocytes and EPO activity in the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) of Bt-sensitized and challenged A/J mice. a Total cells counted in BAL; b eosinophilia in BAL; c eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) activity in BAL. Animals were sensitized and treated with saline (Control), sensitized with Blomia tropicalis (100 μg/animal) and 4 mg/mL of [AL(OH)3] and treated with saline (Bt), sensitized with Blomia tropicalis (100 μg/animal) and 4 mg/mL of [AL(OH)3] and treated with Cy hexane extract (CyH) at 60 mg/kg (Bt/CyH60), 120 mg/kg (Bt/CyH120), 180 mg/kg (Bt/CyH180) or 3 mg/kg dexamethasone (Bt/Dex). Columns represent the mean values of the results obtained from five animals, and error bars represent the standard deviation from the means. ### p < 0.001 vs. control; ***p < 0.001 vs. Bt group by ANOVA-Tukey
