Table 1 Effects of Nrf2 activators and prednisolone on MCP-1 and IL-6 production in TNF-α-stimulated HRMCsa

From: Nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 is a critical target for the treatment of glucocorticoid-resistant lupus nephritis

IC50 (μM) MCP-1 IL-6

Prednisolone >100 >100
  1. aConcentrations of 50 % inhibition (IC 50 ) of MCP-1 and IL-6 production were calculated from sigmoidal inhibition curves presented in Fig. 3. The IC50 values were obtained from three individuals
