Matrine Attenuates COX-2 and ICAM-1 Expressions in Human Lung Epithelial Cells and Prevents Acute Lung Injury in LPS-Induced Mice

Figure 6

Matrine affects neutrophil counts and cytokine and chemokine levels in BALF. In the different treatment groups, we analyzed neutrophil cell counts (a), and the levels of IL-6 (b) and TNF-α (c) were measured by ELISA. N group: normal control mice; LPS group: LPS treatment only; M10 group: 10 mg/kg matrine plus LPS; M20 group: 20 mg/kg matrine plus LPS. All data are presented as mean ± SEM. compared with the LPS control group. compared with the LPS control group.
