Cytokine and chemokine concentrations in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) samples after RSV inoculation. BAL samples were obtained from BALB/c () and C57BL/6 () mice inoculated with sterile 10% EMEM (control), and RSV A2 infected BALB/c (□) and C57BL/6 () mice, to measure concentrations of pro-inflammatory cytokines (A) IFN-γ and (B)TNF-α; and the chemokines (C) RANTES, (D) MIP-1α, and (E) MIG. Values presented in means ± SEM pg/ml. p < .05, by t-test when data were normally distributed, or by Mann-Whitney Rank sum test when data were not normally distributed.
