Th1/Th2 cytokines produced by human MDMs after 24 h of in vitro treatment with Eucalyptus oil. a, Analysis by cytometric bead array of IL-2 (a1), IL-4 (a2), IL-6 (a3), IL-10 (a4), TNF-α (a5), and IFN-γ (a6) production in untreated controls, LPS stimulated MDMs and cells treated with 0.008% and 0.016% E O or pre-treated with E O before LPS stimulation. b, Cytofluorimetric dot plots showing the modification of cytokines profile in culture medium of MDMs LPS-stimulated (b2) or pre-treated with E O before LPS stimulation (b3); b4, merged dot plot showing the decrement in IL-4, IL-6 and TNF-α concentration induced by E O pre-treatment; b1, cytokines profile in standard. **P <0.001 vs LPS stimulation; ***P < 0.0001 vs LPS stimulation.
