The M10 Peptide (IMAGE) Medical University of South Carolina Caption Lung tissue isolated from mice that received bleomycin is characterized by extensive infiltration of inflammatory cells, thickening of the alveolar walls, and multiple fibrotic lesions with excessive amounts of extracellular matrix proteins (left). Lung tissue from mice that received bleomycin and M10 treatment demonstrates significant reduction of cellular infiltrates, decreased thickness of alveolar septa, and reduced accumulation of extracellular matrix proteins (right).
