From: Inhaled aerosolized insulin ameliorates hyperglycemia-induced inflammatory responses in the lungs in an experimental model of acute lung injury

Figure 3

mRNA expression of Toll-like receptor 4 in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid before injury and after injury. NG, acute lung injury with normoglycemia group; HG, acute lung injury with hyperglycemia group; HG-VI, acute lung injury with hyperglycemia treated with intravenous insulin group; HG-AI, acute lung injury with hyperglycemia treated with aerosolized insulin group; TLR4, Toll-like receptor 4. Boxes extend from the 25th to 75th percentile; the horizontal line shows the median. Error bars show the minimum and maximum. *P <0.05 compared before injury in the HG group; ##P <0.01 compared with after injury in the NG group; §P <0.05 compared with after injury in the HG group; P <0.05 compared with after injury in the NG group; ‡‡P <0.01 compared with after injury in the HG group; ¶¶P <0.01 compared with after injury in the HG-VI group.
