Expression of IL-6, TNF-α and ICAM-1 mRNAs in vascular endothelial cells. a The mRNA expressions of Interleukin-6 (IL-6) in vascular endothelial cells. b The mRNA expressions of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) in vascular endothelial cells. c The mRNA expressions of intercellular adhesion molecule-1(ICAM-1) in vascular endothelial cells.CHG (CHG group rats underwent 48 h infusions with 50 % glucose continually to keep the glucose concentration at 20 ± 0.5 mmol/l); AFG (AFG group rats underwent 48 h infusions with 50 % glucose intermittently so that blood glucose alternated between 5.5 ± 0.5 and 20 ± 0.5 mmol/l). Data are mean ± SD. n = 10/group. *P < 0.05 vs SAL; #P < 0.05 vs CHG
