Effect of treatment with Cy on leukocyte infiltration in lung tissue of mice sensitized with Bt antigen. Sections were stained with hematoxylin-eosin (magnification × 400). Lung section from animal sensitized and treated with saline a, sensitized with Blomia tropicalis (100 μg/animal) and 4 mg/mL of [AL(OH)3] and treated with saline b, sensitized with Bt (100 μg/animal) and 4 mg/mL of [AL(OH)3] and treated with Cy hexane extract (CyH) at 60 mg/kg c, 120 mg/kg d, 180 mg/kg e or 3 mg/kg dexamethasone f. Quantification of lung inflammation g. Scale bar, 100 μm. Each column represents the mean of inflammatory area index of 5 mice, and the vertical bars represent the standard deviation of the mean. ### p < 0.001 vs. control; *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001 vs. Bt group by ANOVA-Tukey
