In order to elucidate the immunotoxic mechanism exerted by sulfur dioxide (SO(2)), we investigated the effect of SO(2), a major air pollutant, on the cytokine levels in lungs and serum of male mice. Levels of interlukin-6(IL-6), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) in lungs and serum from male mice exposed to SO(2) at various concentrations were measured by the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Sixty Kunming albino male mice were divided… CONTINUE READING
