Effect of fish oil or Vit E supplementation on PM2.5-induced TNF-α and IL-1β release from rat lungs and CRP and IL-6 release in serum. Total inflammatory cell counts (a) was counted under light microscope. TNF-α (b), IL-1β (c), CRP (d) and IL-6 (e) were determined by ELISA. All values represent the mean ± SD (n = 8). *p < 0.05 compared with corresponding control group; #p < 0.05 compared with PM2.5 group
