Static lung elastance on days 1 and 3. Mice were subjected to cecal ligation and puncture (CLP). A sham-operated group was used as a control CLP. At day 1, some animals were euthanized after establishment of ARDS in order to evaluate static lung elastance (Est,L), while other animals were randomized to receive saline or non-expanded endothelial progenitor cells (EPC-NEXP), expanded endothelial progenitor cells (EPC-EXP), human mesenchymal stem cells (MSC-HUMAN), or mouse mesenchymal stem cells (MSC-MICE), intravenously. Values expressed as mean ± standard deviation of eight animals in each group. *P < 0.05, versus respective sham group. **P < 0.05, versus CLP group at day 3. # P < 0.05, versus EPC-NEXP group. &P < 0.05, versus MSC-MICE group
