Therapeutic potentials of M. marshalli on development of OVA-induced allergic asthma. 20 μg of somatic extract of M. marshalli was administrated during each sensitization with OVA and then aerosol challenges were performed using 1% OVA. Bronchioalveolar lavage (BAL) and lung tissue were collected at day 17. a Frequency of histopathological scoring (H & E and PAS) of asthma, statistical analysis was performed with the Kruskal-Wallis test. Data represent mean and SEM of five mice, with a mean score from three lung section per mouse. P-value < 0.05. b Inflammatory cells count in the BAL fluid. Error bars show SD. P < 0.05; one-way ANOVA test
