Acute downregulation of IL-1β, TNF-α and IL-10 mRNA levels but increased IL-6 mRNA levels after fetal asphyxia. Prenatal relative mRNA levels of IL-1β (A), TNF-α (B), IL-10 (C) and IL-6 (D) in control and FA animals. mRNA levels are relative to the geomean of measured housekeeping genes and normalized to control levels. *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 significantly different from respective control group. Data shown as mean + SEM.
