Figure 3: Analysis of the expression of (a) matrix metalloproteinase-9 and (b) tissue inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinase-3 mRNA in lung tissue of wistar rats using quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. Fold change in treatment groups against the sephadex control is represented in the bar diagram. Results are expressed as mean ± standard error of the mean (n = 6/group). A indicates P < 0.05 as compared to normal control vehicle-treated rats, B indicates P < 0.05 as compared to sephadex challenged vehicle-treated group
