Figure 3: The concentration of cytokines: IL-1α (a), IL-1β (b) in the muscle tissue: untreated control (CTRL), after vehicle injection (VEH), and after MDCs transplantation (MDC) 1, 3, and 7 days after surgery. Protein concentrations of cytokines in tissue were determined using ELISA tests. Results were analyzed in pairs (untreated control versus VEH and VEH versus MDC) using nonparametric U Mann-Whitney test. indicate statistically significant difference between MDC and VEH groups and #indicate statistically significant difference between VEH and CTRL groups in certain time points.
