Measurement of the IOD/area of immunohistochemical staining of renal fibrogenic and interstitial fibrosis factors and apoptotic proteins. (a) Measurement of the IOD/area of α-SMA, . (b) Measurement of the IOD/area of caspase-3, and . (c) Measurement of the IOD/area of TGF-β1, . IOD/area: integrated optical density/area. The mean of IOD/area of positive staining was used to accurately measure the degree of positive expression in immunohistochemistry samples.
