Effect of NaHS and capsazepine on protein levels of cytokines and chemokines in the lungs and liver of septic mice.
Mice were randomly given NaHS (10 mg/kg, i.p.) or vehicle (DMSO) at the same time of CLP; and capsazepine (Capz) (15 mg/kg, s.c.) or vehicle (DMSO) 30 minutes before CLP. Sham mice were used as controls. Eight hours after CLP or sham operation, protein levels of (A) TNF-α, (B) IL-1β, (C) IL-6, (D) MIP-1α and (E) MIP-2 were measured. Results shown are the mean values ± SEM (n = 8–12 mice per group). *P<0.01 versus sham; **P<0.01 versus CLP+vehicle; ‡P<0.05 versus CLP+vehicle; †P<0.01 versus CLP+NaHS+vehicle.
