The relative cell counts of macrophages, neutrophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes in the BALF
were analyzed using Liu's stain (Fig.
The first proteome analysis of BALF
was done in 1979 by Bell and Hook.
After withdrawal of BALF
, the lungs were excised and immersed into saline, blotted, weighed, placed directly in liquid nitrogen, and stored at -80[degrees]C for further analysis.
The most notable change in BALF
inflammatory markers was found for neutrophils.
We observed the percentage changes in EOS and NEU in BALF
of asthmatic mice treated with extracts of BSYQT.
was established in February 1978, in San Jose to develop meaningful programs of education and personal assistance for lupus patients and family members.
sup] If clinicians can recognize early radiological features of PCP, GMS stains and PCR assay of BALF
or sputum should be carried out to confirm the diagnosis in the early stage.
The neutrophils in BALF
increased significantly in LPS group compared with that in control group (255 [+ or -] 164.
There was inflammatory cell infiltration with a large number of neutrophil and lymphocyte in the mouse lung, edema in airway mucos, and a large number of inflammatory cells in alveolar space, which coincided with pathological changes of asthma and thus suggested the successful setup of asthma model Compared with asthma model, EOS count in BALF
in treatment group reduced obviously.

Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF
) collection and quantitation of in vivo mucins in BALF
In addition, there were no significant differences among groups in BALF
cell counts (alveolar macrophages or other leukocytes) or in protein concentrations in BALF
collected on GD 21 (see Table S4).
