In Figures 6B and 7B, the low-dose response data for IL-1[beta] and MIP2 are also presented on logarithmic dose scales, which is to illustrate that sufficiently detailed measurements at low doses provide a better means of identifying the zero-dose response (or offset) than using a rather limited number of sham or control experiments.
In the actual evaluation, 12 low-dose data points were included in the PMN set, 13 each in the IL-1[beta] and the MIP2 sets.
In Figure 2A, the inverse correlation between primary particle size and inflammatory response, reflected by the PMN influx and MIP2 or IL-1[beta] concentrations in BALF, is presented for the exemplary dose of 20 [micro]g.
