AZT treatment reduces inflammatory infiltrates and expression of inflammatory markers in mdx hearts. Representative images of heart muscle sections following 4-week treatment with AZT or PBS stained with H&E (a) and AP (b). c The AP signal indicating inflammatory cell infiltration was quantified using the Ariol image analysis system with the AP positive area calculated as % of the total cross-sectional area. Error bars show mean ± SD, Mann Whitney test, n = 4. d qPCR analysis of specified transcript expressions in heart muscles in response to AZT treatment. Scale bar = 100 μm. Mann Whitney test, n = 6, CD68: AZT-mdx vs PBS-mdx p = 0.029; TNFa: AZT-mdx vs PBS-mdx p = 0.008; iNOS: AZT-mdx vs PBS-mdx p = 0.009. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01
