Effect of oral administration of WGP on lung histology and soluble collagen. af Representative sections from both treatment groups demonstrate the varied morphological changes seen within the lung. H&E sections from a representative mouse treated with PBS (a, b) and a representative mouse treated with WGP (d, e). PAS stains from different areas reveal mucous cell metaplasia in each group (c, f). g, h Graphs display mean ± SEM. Inflammatory Focus Score (g) and Mucus Cell Score (h). Graphs are the cumulative result of 2 independent experiments (n = 10). i Graph displays mean ± SEM of soluble collagen levels in BALF. Graph is the cumulative result of 5 independent experiments (n = 22–23)
