Review: ELISA was used to determine (A) the levels of IL-1β, (B) IL-18, and (C) TNFα in the hippocampus. ELISA showed that the level of IL-1β, IL-18, and TNFα in the hippocampus on 24h after LPS injection was significantly increased in the LPS group, but reversed in the LPS mice pretreated with Crocin, Data are presented as mean ± SEM, n = 10 mice/group, ##p < 0.01 versus the control group, *P<0.05 and **P<0.01 versus the LPS group.
