BMSC-CM prevents apoptosis in the outer medulla. (a) TUNEL staining was performed on sections of formalin fixed and paraffin-embedded kidneys from rats administered a lethal dose of cisplatin (7.5 mg/kg) and sacrificed at 5 days following cisplatin administration. The arrows indicate TUNEL positive cells. The rats were treated at 3, 9, 24, 48 and 72 hours following cisplatin administration, with 1 mL of either physiological saline ( ), or BMSC conditioned medium ( ) i.v. (b) Quantification of the TUNEL positive cells per field of view. Scale bar = 200 μm. by Student’s T-test.
