Resting maximal urethral pressures (MUP) in monkeys with acute ISD. Results are shown as the percent change from baseline values in each experimental condition. Results are shown for controls (no ISD, no treatment); monkeys with ISD and local vehicle only (ALV); monkeys with ISD and local skeletal muscle precursor cell injections (ALM) and ISD monkeys with systemic muscle cell injections (ASM). ANOVA = 0.01. * = p < 0.05 vs. baseline at 3 and 6 months. § = p < 0.05 vs. ALV. # = p < 0.05 vs. ALM, and p < 0.05 vs. ALV. Values are mean ± standard error of the mean (SEM). Results indicate that the ISD procedure reduced MUP values in all groups, and that local injection of skeletal muscle precursor cells was more effective than systemic administration in restoring baseline MUP values
