Flow cytometric analysis of IL-17A–producing cells in peritoneal fluid after CLP and the percentage of neutrophil granulocytes in peritoneal fluid after intraperitoneal blockade with anti-IL-17A antibodies.
(A) Representative flow cytometric dot plots. (B) Percentage of IL-17A+ -T cells in peritoneal lavage fluid after CLP or sham operation. (C) Percentage of neutrophil granulocytes in peritoneal fluid after blockade of anti-IL-17A in the four groups. The mice underwent a sham procedure, CLP, CLP with intraperitoneal anti-IL-17A or isotype administration (n = 6 for each group). Peritoneal lavage fluid was harvested 24 h after surgery. *P<0.05.
