Effects of MPE on expression levels of inflammatory cytokines in MSU crystal-induced gouty arthritis in mouse paw tissue. Con, control mice; MSU, MSU crystal-induced mice; MPE, MSU mice treated with 150/300 mg/kg of MPE; Col, MSU mice treated with 1 mg/kg of colchicine. a IL-1β and b TNF-α levels were measured by ELISA. Data are presented as the mean ± SEM (n = 5). # p < 0.0001 vs. control group; * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01 and **** p < 0.0001 vs. MSU group
