Figure 1: Serum cytokine levels of rats. A: IL-6 and TNF-α; B: IL-1β and IL-10; C: kidney MDA level; D: TAC levels and serum GPx activity. The data are expressed as mean±SD. *P<0.05, the gentamicin group vs. the healthy control group, **P<0.05, the H. persicum treated group vs. the gentamicin group, #P< 0.05, the 750 mg/kg H. persicum treated group (without gentamicin) vs. the healthy control group. IL-6: interleukin-6; TNF-α: tumor necrosis factor-α; IL-1β: interleukin-1β; IL-10: interleukin-10; MDA: malondialdehyde; GPx: glutathione peroxidase; TAC: total antioxidant capacity.
