Muscle/collagen content in chronic ISD. Sphincter collagen and muscle content in monkeys with chronic ISD (6-month duration). The study groups are: control, chronic local vehicle (CLV), chronic local skeletal muscle progenitor cell injection (CLM), and chronic systemic muscle cell injection (CSM). Note. Statistical significance notations apply to both collagen and muscle content ANOVA = 0.001 * = p < 0.05 vs. control; § = p < 0.05 vs. CLV (local vehicle); # = p < 0.05 vs. CLM (local muscle). Values are mean ± standard error of the mean (SEM). Results indicate that the ISD procedure produced a collagen-dominant urinary sphincter and that muscle content was somewhat restored with local injection but not with systemic administration of skeletal muscle precursor cells
