Effect of ethanol extract of P. giganteus (EPG) on the NF-kB (a) and STAT-3 (b) expression in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. Results are expressed as fold of increase compared to LPS treatment as control. Fold increase values are calculated relative to the ACTB gene. Control = cell treated with LPS only; Dexa = dexamethasone; Asp = Aspirin; EPG = ethanol extract of P. giganteus at 10 μg/mL. Data expressed as mean ± S.D (n = 3). The different alphabets denote significant difference (p < 0.05) from the corresponding value for control
