From: Paeoniflorin regulates macrophage activation in dimethylnitrosamine-induced liver fibrosis in rats

Group (number) TNF-α (pg/L) IL-1β (pg/L)
Normal (5) 35.44±5.64 26.70±3.56
2-week DMN (3) 896.51±78.06 954.71±75.28
DMN-water (5) 758.72±61.54 647.66±95.54
DMN-PF (5) 446.95±42.90 471.34±26.67
DMN-GdCl3 (5) 708.03±78.84 705.63±99.46
  1. p<0.05 versus 2-week DMN rats; p<0.05 versus DMN-water rats. Bonferroni’s multiple comparison test was used for group comparisons in TNF-α and IL-1β.
