Data are presented as where each experiment was performed in duplicate and analysed using one-way ANOVA and post hoc Duncan multiple test. For each cytokine/chemokine, means within a row with different roman letters were significantly different () from each other. Mean with an asterisk () was significantly () different from the positive control (infected cells). Cur-CS: curcumin-encapsulated chitosan.
