Semi quantitative RT-PCR analysis of IL-8 and TNFα mRNA levels. The incubation with S. aureus supernatant for 1 h increased significantly (*, p < 0.05) IL-8 and TNFα mRNA levels compared to control condition (A and B, respectively). When the incubation of S. aureus supernatant for 1 h was followed by treatment with Sal/FP for 4 h, S. aureus supernatant-induced IL-8 (A) mRNA level was significantly (*, p < 0.05) reduced, but no significant effect was observed for TNFα. Results are normalized to the 28S level and are expressed as mean ± SEM of 8 independent experiments performed in duplicate.
