Male and female mice were exposed for 6 h to diesel exhaust (DE, 250–300 μg/m3) or filtered air (FA), and levels of malondialdehyde (MDA) and of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) were measured in the hippocampus, as markers of oxidative stress (lipid peroxidation) and neuroinflammation, respectively. Results indicate the mean (±SE) with . DE versus FA: *; **. M versus F: # (two-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni test for multiple comparisons) (from ; Costa et al., unpublished results).
