Changes in inflammatory mediator expression of the liver.

<p>The table shows B coefficients (95% confidence intervals) of the linear regression. Animals which received solely Ringers' lactate were used as reference group. mRNA expression is expressed as a fold-difference relative to the reference group. The different fluid ingredients (HES, gelatin, and acetate buffer) were entered as binary independent predictors in the regression model. Significance: <sup>a</sup>p≤0.001, <sup>b</sup>p≤0.01, <sup>c</sup>p<0.05; CINC-1  =  cytokine-induced neutrophil chemoattractant-1; MCP-1  =  monocyte chemoattractant protein-1; TNFα  =  tumor necrosis factor α; ICAM-1  =  intercellular adhesion molecule-1.</p>
