Figure 4. Inhibition of allergic pleurisy by oral pre-treatment (1 h) with the aqueous extract of Syzygium cumini (SC) leaves (100 mg/kg). Pleurisy was induced in 14 day-sensitized mice by antigen challenge (ovalbumin, OVA: 12.5 µg/cavity). Total leukocyte (A), mononuclear cell (B), neutrophil (C), and eosinophil (D) counts were performed 24 h after challenge. Data are reported as the mean ± SEM for at least 7 animals. Dexa = dexamethasone. +P £ 0.05 compared to saline group; *P < 0.05 compared to untreated group (Student-Newman-Keuls post-test).
