Proinflammatory cytokines TNF-α (a) and IL-1β (b) levels were measured by RT-PCR in the main immune organs including the liver, spleen and kidney from AMP/MPA-QDs treated and control groups 4 h post-injection. Error bars represent s.d. (n = 6). *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 (two-tailed Student’s t test). Exceeded thresholds of two-fold induction or 0.5-fold suppression were considered as significant variation comparing experimental groups and control groups [26]
