Proinflammatory mediators in the synovial membrane (SM). a Representative western blot of IL-1β, IL-6, TNF and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) protein levels expressed in the SM of the rabbits in each group. EZ blue staining was used as protein loading control. b-e Densitometric analysis of IL-1β, IL-6, TNF and COX-2 measured by western blot. Data from individual measurements, expressed as fold induction and mean and 95% CI for each group are shown (n = 12–20 SM per group). HFD, high-fat diet; OA, osteoarthritis
