Figure 2

The concentrations of IL-8 (blank column) and TGF-β1 (black column) in the supernatant of MKN45 cells pre-treated with different MOI (0: control; 1: 1 × 106 c.f.u.; 10: 1 × 107 c.f.u.; 100: 1 × 108 c.f.u.) of L. acidophilus. The cells were washed thrice with PBS to remove the L. acidophilus and then infected with H. pylori (MOI = 100) for 4 hours. Data are expressed as means ± SD (in triplicate). Statistical analysis was performed in each measurement with comparisons to the controls (cells treated H. pylori only; IL-8 2034 ± 865 pg/ml and TGF-β1 587.2 ± 39.8 pg/ml) (*P < 0.05).
