Figure 1

Neutrophils in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid with and without exposure to smoke and mechanical ventilation. The four groups depicted are nonsmoke/nonventilation (NS-NV), smoke/nonventilation (S-NV), nonsmoke/ventilation (NS-V) and smoke/ventilation (S-V). To the right of the dot blots, mean ± SD values are indicated by bars. The combination of the two stimuli resulted in a significant increase in polymorphonuclear cells (P < 0.01) compared to all other groups, including NS-V rats.
