Effects of EA on the levels of TNF-α, IL-6, and IL-1β in ischemic cortex and serum after MCAO. (a–c) The levels of TNF-α, IL-6, and IL-1β mRNA in cortex were determined by real-time PCR ( animals per group). GAPDH was used as an internal control. (d–f) Protein concentrations of TNF-α, IL-6, and IL-1β in the serum in different groups ( animals per group). Data represent mean ± SEM. versus Sham and   and   versus MCAO. versus Sham.
