  1. Supernatant IL-1Ra production (pg/ml) was compared between different whole blood volumes after stimulation with LPS, PCPwL or erTNF-α. Maximal concentrations were obtained after the start of stimulation at various time points until 72 h. Data represent means ± SEM of three different horses. BC, blood concentration
