From: Rosuvastatin attenuates contrast-induced nephropathy through modulation of nitric oxide, inflammatory responses, oxidative stress and apoptosis in diabetic male rats

  NDCM (n = 8) D (n = 8) DR (n = 8) DCM (n = 8) DRCM (n = 8)
IL-6 (pg/ml) 11.28 ± 1.45# 7.63 ± 0.93 7.23 ± 0.69 15.14 ± 1.23* 12.23 ± 1.06#
