ELISA analysis of the secretion of the angiogenic factor secreted by the rat adipose-derived stem cells (rADSCs) on the modified scaffolds. a Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), b hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and c basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) secretion by the rADSCs after 7 and 14 days (n = 6). Note that rADSCs on the PRP+PM and PM scaffolds secreted significantly more angiogenic factors including VEGF, HGF and bFGF than those on the PU and PRP scaffolds (p < 0.05). PU unmodified scaffolds, PRP platelet-rich plasma-modified scaffolds, PM argon-modified scaffold, PRP+PM platelet-rich plasma and argon modification. p values, *p< 0.05 and **p< 0.01
