Cell retention in the IVD. (a) Representative images of IVIS at day 1 and day 30 after injection. (b) The histogram of luminescence of the hydrogel+cell group and cell group in the ROI in overlaying images. ROI was represented by a blue circle. The H-gel+cell group is the hydrogel+cell group. Data represent ; the error bars represent the standard deviation of measurements for 3 separate samples (); compared with the hydrogel+cell group.
