Measurement of total IgE and C5a in serum or BALF after intratracheal instillation of NiO NPs at 200 cm2/rat. Total IgE levels were measured in (a) serum and (b) BALF. Levels of C5a were measured in (c) serum and (d) BALF. Abbreviations: VEHNP, vehicle control for NiO NPs; OVA, ovalbumin-induced allergic airway inflammation; VEHOVA, vehicle control for OVA group. Mean ± SEM (n = 4). Student’s t-test was applied for comparison between OVA group and vehicle control (VEHOVA) with statistical significance indicated by ### p < 0.001
