a Representative histology and (b) MLI in 14-day-old rats exposed to RA or hyperoxia and treated with NS, MSCs, surfactant, or MSCs + surfactant on postnatal day 5. The rats reared in hyperoxia and treated with NS exhibited a significantly higher MLI than did those reared in RA and treated with NS, MSCs, or surfactant. Treatment with MSCs or surfactant significantly reduced the hyperoxia-induced increase in the MLI. The O2 + MSCs + surfactant group exhibited a significantly higher MLI than did the O2 + MSCs group.*P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01.
