Effects of treatment with single oral doses of naproxen or ATB-346 on leukocyte recruitment to the knee joint cavity secondary to CGN-induced synovitis in rats. CGN-injected animals were orally pre-treated with naproxen (at 0.3, 1, 3 and 10 mg/kg; n = 8), equimolar ATB-346 doses (0.48, 1.6, 4.8 and 16 mg/kg; n = 8) or vehicle (1 ml/kg; n = 8). A separate control group (Sham - S) received only an injection of saline injection (n = 5). The bars represent the mean ± SEM values of the number of total leukocytes (panel A), neutrophils (panel B), monocytes (panel C) or lymphocytes (panel D) per cavity measured 5 h after CGN injection. ***P < 0.001 vs. S; #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01 and ###P < 0.001 vs. vehicle-treated (V) group, as analysed by one-way ANOVA followed by the Bonferroni's multiple comparison test.
