Managing the Combination of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and Metabolic Syndrome with Chinese Herbal Extracts in High-Fat-Diet Fed Rats
Effects of SME on leptin (a), TNF-α (b), and IL-6 (c) expression in adipose tissue of chow fed rats and HFD control rats treated with saline (5 mL/kg of body weight), and HFD rats treated with rosiglitazone (HFD-RSG, 3 mg/kg of body weight) or SGE (HFD-SGE, 2 g/kg of body weight). Adipose leptin, TNF-α, and IL-6 were determined using a multiplex rat adipocyte Linoplex kit stated in method section. Data are means ± SEM; rats/group. , versus chow control; and compared with HFD-Con.
