Figure 2: Infarct volume of the BMSC group decreased significantly from that of the control group (a). Results of the adhesive removal test (b) and treadmill test (c) at days 1 and 7 after MCAo in the control and BMSC groups. In the adhesive removal test, the BMSC group showed markedly improved behavior function (b). On the treadmill test, although there were no significant differences between the groups, the graph depicts an improvement in motor function in the BMSC group. * .
