Table 4 Pathological changes in sensitized group treated with three different concentrations of O. basilicum (S + OB)

From: Immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects of hydro-ethanolic extract of Ocimum basilicum leaves and its effect on lung pathological changes in an ovalbumin-induced rat model of asthma
