  • a Results are representative of 3 experiments with 4 to 6 mice per group.

  • b Statistical analyses (Student's t test) were performed on data from the inoculated groups comparing animals with high PMNs to those with low PMNs. No positively stained epithelial cells were detected for TLR2 or dectin-1.
