Fig. 3. Morphometry of spinal cord lesion after contusion SCI. Longitudinal spinal cord sections from the vehicle transplant group (A), GFP-hMSC transplant group (B), and Olig2-GFP-hMSC transplant group (C) were stained with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) at 8 weeks after SCI. Histological analyses were conducted of longitudinal sections encompassing the lesion area. Dotted line outlines the lesion boundary. (D) The histograms represent measurements of the lesion area of vehicle transplant group, GFP-hMSC transplant group and Olig2-GFP-hMSC transplant group. (E) Correlations between BBB score 7 weeks post-injury and lesion size in the spinal cord tissue. Data are shown as mean±SEM. The results are representative of at least three rats in each group. *p<0.05 vs. vehicle transplant group, p<0.05 vs. GFP-hMSC transplant group.
