Histological and Immunohistochemical Evaluation of Autologous Cultured Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells and Bone Marrow Mononucleated Cells in Collagenase-Induced Tendinitis of Equine Superficial Digital Flexor Tendon

Table 1

Morphological and immunohistochemical scores evaluated for each horse at 21 weeks following treatment of collagenase-induced tendinitis SDFT, superficial digital flexor tendon; RH, right hind limb; LF, left fore limb; RF, right fore limb; cBMSCs, cultured bone marrow mesenchymal cells; BMMNCS, bone marrow mononucleated cells; FOS, fiber orientation score; MCI, mononucleated cell infiltration score; Collagen I, type I collagen fiber expression score; Collagen III, type III collagen fiber expression score; COMP, cartilage oligomeric matrix protein expression score; CD34, score describing presence of CD34+ mononuclear cells localized throughout the damaged area of the SDFT (see Section 2 for more details). Significant differences from placebo group: #P<.05.
