Melatonin alleviated the inflammation caused by CS exposure. The ELISA method was used to detect the expression of IL-1β (a) and IL-6 (b) in the mouse serum. The thoracic aortas of the mice were stained immunohistochemically for CD68 (c) and ICAM-1 (d) (200 × magnification). Average integrated optical density (IOD) was used for quantitative analysis (e, f). *P < 0.05, ***P < 0.001
