Figure 4

Effect of curcumin on renal messenger RNA expression levels of TNF-α (A) and IL-1β (B) in rats with DN were determined by quantitative RT-PCR. The expression level of each sample is expressed relative to the expression level of GAPDH gene. C, age-matched normal rats; D, diabetic-treated rats administered with vehicle; Cur, diabetic rats treated with curcumin 100 mg/kg/day. ** p < 0.01 vs. C; ## p < 0.01 vs. D based on one way ANOVA followed by Tukey's test.
