SUD suppresses IL-1β and TNF-α host mediator induced IL-8 expression by gingival keratinocytes. a. Representative figures of IL-8 expression measured by ELISA of TIGK cells infected for 4 h with exogenous IL-1β and b. TNF-α at 100 ng/ml performed three independent times in triplicate. Controls are cell culture medium with the indicated concentrations of SUD. Error bars represent standard deviations of experiments. Significant statistical differences were calculated using the student t-test (* P ≤ 0.05, ** P ≤ 0.01, *** P ≤ 0.001, n.s. not significant). No statistical significance indicates IL-8 levels were significantly reduced similar to basal levels
