Broncho-alveolar lavage (BAL) and DEP-uptake. a Total number of macrophages, neutrophils and eosinophils was counted in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of experiment 1 and 2. **p < 0.01 and ***p < 0.001 (One-Way ANOVA). b The percentage of macrophages loaded with DEP was counted. For each mice of experiment 1 and 2, 100 macrophages were counted in duplicate and an average of the duplicates was calculated per mice. Data is shown as mean with SD in (a and b) (n = 20–21 mice per group). c The number of particles taken up by the macrophages was calculated for each mice of experiment 1. Hundred macrophages per mice were counted and an average of the 100 macrophages per mice was calculated, shown in (c). *p < 0.05 (Unpaired t-test) (n = 8–9 mice per group). d Macrophages in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid loaded with DEP, representing DEP/E mice (40 X amplification). e Macrophages in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, representing Sal/E mice. (40 X amplification)
