Squalene Stimulates a Key Innate Immune Cell to Foster Wound Healing and Tissue Repair

Figure 2

Production of cytokines in M1 macrophage cells after SQ treatment in chemiluminescent arbitrary units (AU). (a) Anti-inflammatory cytokines; (b) molecular signals of remodelling and repairing damage; (c) proinflammatory cytokines. At 1μM the anti-inflammatory and recruitment effect are more notable than the rest of concentrations used. With this concentration SQ appeared to stimulate more efficiently an anti-inflammatory accumulative activity in M1 macrophages.
