Figure 7

Particle-dependent release of TNF-α and IL-1β. (A) ufTiO2 and DQ12 particles trigger the release of TNF-α by AM in a concentration- dependent manner. (B) Only DQ12 particles cause the release of IL-1β by AM at the highest concentrations. Data are presented as mean ± SEM of three independent experiments, with * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01 and *** p < 0.001 vs. medium control (ANOVA with LSD post-hoc comparison).
