Andro treatment attenuates diabetes-induced myocardial inflammation. (a) Immunostaining of IL-6 (upper panel), VCAM-1 (middle panel), and ICAM-1 (lower panel). (b–d) Real-time qPCR analysis was performed to detect the mRNA expression of the proinflammatory cytokines, including TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 in the myocardial tissues. compared to control; compared to DM.
