Figure 5: Electron microscopic photomicrographs of the spinal cord of control and fibroblast growth factor/olfactory ensheathing cell-treated rats. (a-c) Representative electron microscopic images of control (Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium; (a), treated (fibroblast growth factor + olfactory ensheathing cell (9); (b) and fibroblast growth factor; (c)) spinal cords at the end of experimental period. Demyelinated and dissolved axons (white arrows) are observed in control injured spinal cord (a). Olfactory ensheathing cells wrap the axons in transplanted spinal cord (b). Preserved axons with myelin in fibroblast growth factor-treated spinal cord (c). Red arrow, single axon; yellow arrow, olfactory ensheathing cell; green arrow, axons with myelin scale bar 1 μm
