Cytokines levels in pericardial fluid. Cytokines levels were measured in the filtered pericardial fluid using quantitative ELISA kits for porcine TNF-alpha and active TGF-beta. Absorbance was read at 450 nm and cytokines levels (expressed in pg/ml) were extrapolated from a calibration curve. The graphs represent mean values ± standard deviation of four independently performed experiments (n = 4) for TNF-alpha (a) and active TGF-beta (b) determinations. The results were analyzed through a Student’s t-test for variables with parametric distribution, comparing each measure with the control group (*p < .05)
