Analysis of cytokines in BALF and HO-1 in lung tissue following intratracheal instillation. A CINC-1/CXCL1 concentration in BALF. B CINC-2/CXCL3 concentration in BALF. C CXCL5 concentration in BALF. D HO-1 concentration in lung tissue. The expressions of CINC-1/CXCL1, CINC-2/CXCL3 and CXCL5 in BALF in the exposed groups were persistently higher compared to the control group in a dose dependent-manner during 1 month after the exposure. Data are presented as mean ± SE (*p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 indicate that the values are significantly higher than control group. p < 0.05 and ††p < 0.01 indicate that the values are significantly lower than control group.)
