Effect of AC-PACs on IL-6 and IL-8 secretion by C. albicans (MOI of 3 or 15)-stimulated oral epithelial cells. IL-6 (Panel A) and IL-8 (Panel B) concentrations in the cell-free supernatants were determined by ELISA. Assays were run in triplicate, and the means ± SD from three independent assays were calculated. *, significantly higher than the value for the unstimulated (C. albicans) control (P < 0.05); †, significantly lower than the value for the untreated (AC-PACs) control (P < 0.05).
