Baicalein blocks inflammation and oxidative stress in pristane-induced lupus. Mice were treated as described in Fig. 1. a, b The levels of IL-1β and IL-18 in the serum were detected by ELISA. c Superoxide anion levels in the serum, d urine, and e kidney were detected. f GPx activity in the kidney. g Kidney ROS production was demonstrated by dihydroethidium (DHE) labeling. The arrows indicated the glomeruli. Original magnification, × 200. h The scoring of the percentage of positive nuclei is shown in the right panel. BA represents baicalein. Data represent the mean scores ± SEM. *P ≤ 0.05, **P ≤ 0.01, ***P ≤ 0.001. n = 7 animals per group
