Table 2 Effect of SSEW on IgE levels in BALF and plasma

From: Samsoeum water extract attenuates allergic airway inflammation via modulation of Th1/Th2 cytokines and decrease of iNOS expression in asthmatic mice

  1. NC, normal control group (vehicle); OVA, OVA-induced group (control); Mon, montelukast (30 mg/kg) + OVA-induced group (positive control); SSEW-100, SSEW (100 mg/kg) + OVA-induced group; SSEW-200, SSEW (200 mg/kg) + OVA-induced group. The values represent the mean ± S.E.M. (n = 6 in each group). Significant differences at ##P < 0.01 compared with the NC group. Significant differences at *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01 compared with the OVA-induced group.
