Suppression of Proinflammatory Cytokines in Functionalized Fullerene-Exposed Dermal Keratinocytes

Figure 5

Effect of fullerene derivatives on IL-6 and IL-8 release in HEK cells. Cells were treated with fullerene derivatives for 2, 4, 8, 12, 24, and 48 hours. Cytokine ELISA detection kits were used to evaluate cytokines in culture media. IL-6 (a) and IL-8 (b) releases were significantly altered by fullerene derivatives. Data are means ± SEM. of quadruplicate cultures in each treatment group.
