Figure 4: Trunk blood IL-6, CRP, aldosterone and TNF-alpha levels. Means ± SEM (IL-6), medians for CRP, aldosterone, and TNF-alpha. Noise and sham groups had lower concentrations of CRP, relative to control rats. Noise exposure was also associated with lower TNF-alpha, relative to control; aldosterone was elevated among the noise group, relative to control. No differences were found for IL-6. *, + respectively, denotes significant difference from sham and control group, P < 0.05. IL-6 = interleukin-6, CRP = C-reactive protein, TNF = tumour necrosis factor, pg/mL = picograms per millilitre
