From: Vitamin C treatment attenuates hemorrhagic shock related multi-organ injuries through the induction of heme oxygenase-1

Figure 6

Both VitC pre- and post-treatment decreased the tissues level of proinflammatory cytokines through HO-1 induction. The mRNA and protein levels of the proinflammatory cytokines TNF-α (A, B) and IL-6 (C, D) in tissues collected at 12 hours after HS operation were tested. The data represents the mean ± SEM, n = 6. *p < 0.05 vs. the Sham; **p < 0.05 vs. the HS; ***p < 0.05 vs. the HSV-pre; ****p < 0.05 vs. the HSV-post. Sham: the rats which received NS and underwent sham operation. ShamV: the rats which received VitC and underwent sham operation. HS: the rats which received NS and underwent HS operation. HSV-pre: the rats which received VitC at 6 hours before HS operation. HSV-preZ: some HSV-pre rats further received ZnPP. HSV-post: the rats which underwent HS operation and received VitC immediately. HSV-postZ: some HSV-post rats further received ZnPP.
