Omega-9 Oleic Acid, the Main Compound of Olive Oil, Mitigates Inflammation during Experimental Sepsis
Omega-9 reduced proinflammatory cytokines but increases the level of the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 in the peritoneal lavage of mice submitted to CLP. Animals were treated with omega-9 for 14 days. On the 15th day, CLP was performed, and 24 h after, the peritoneal lavage was collected for the quantification of TNF-α (a), IL-1β (b), and IL-10 (c). Each bar represents the mean ± SEM of at least 7 animals. and + compared to sham and sham + omega-9, respectively, and # compared to CLP.
