Figure 3: Retrograde analyses of preserved/regenerating neurons in control and fibroblast growth factor/olfactory ensheathing cell-treated rats. (a and b) Representative images of retrograde tracer Fast Blue-labeled rat spinal cord in control (Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium; (a) and fibroblast growth factor + olfactory ensheathing cell (9) treated rats (b). white arrows, Fast Blue-positive blue fluorescent cell bodies; big arrows, injury epicenter. (c and d) The number of Fast Blue-labeled cell bodies in 1.2 mm caudal (c) and rostral (d) to the injury epicenter. The number of labeled cells were approximately similar in caudal (d, P < 0.33), while the number was increased in the rostral area of treated spinal cord (d, P < 0.01)
