In vivo effect of cinnamon water extract(CWE)on levels of LPS-stimulated serum inflammatory cytokines. CWE (20, 100, and 500 mg/kg) was orally administered to mice for 6 days before intraperitoneal injection of LPS (1.3 mg/kg). Dexamethasone (Dex) (5 mg/kg) was i.p. injected 18 h before LPS injection. Serum was obtained 1 h after LPS stimulation and the levels of TNF-α and IL-6 were measured by ELISA. Data are expressed as the mean ± SEM of three independent experiments (n=12). * P <0.05 compared with the control group
