<p>The Mo/Hu APPswe PS1dE9 mice were fed with or without EA-CG (50 mg/kg BW) for 6 months. The brain were isolated from the EA-CG treated and control (PBS) groups (n = 3 mice per each group). After the brain was divided in half, we tested the gene expression profile of the inflammatory cytokines IL-1α (A) and IFN-γ (B) as markers of the cellular response by semi-quantitative RT-PCR. The fold change was presented after normalization to the housekeeping gene β-actin). *p < 0.05; n.s. mean not significant. The levels of Aspartate aminotransferase activity (AST, Units/L) and Alanine aminotransferase activity (ALT, Units/L)) were measured in the sera by centrifugation after obtain mice blood from each group, and then the relative value (U/L) of ALT (C) or AST (D) as hepatotoxicity markers were measured and presented after comparison to the controls (PBS groups), according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The values were presented as the means ± S.E.M (n = 3 mice per each group). n.s. mean not significant.</p
