Assessment of bronchial lavage fluid for cellular infiltration after acute (1-day) exposure to atmospheres. Acute exposure to UFP, UFP + G, FP, and FP + G does not induce cellular infiltration into the pulmonary system in the C57BL/6 mice as indicated by no change in bronchial lavage fluid (BALF) assessment of (a) total cell counts, (b) lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity, and (c) total protein (albumin). A similar lack of effect was observed in ApoE−/− mice for (d) total cell counts, (e) lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity, and (g) total protein (albumin). n = 7–8 per group, *p < .05; **p < .01; ***p < .001
