rMSCs increased RGC survival up to 240 days after crush. ae Confocal images of flat-mounted retinas. Control retina (contralateral eye) shows numerous Tuj1+ cells and intact axon bundles. a, c Vehicle-injected retinas; b, d rMSC-treated retinas. Arrows point to cell bodies and arrowheads to axon bundles. f, g In rMSC-injected animals, surviving RGCs were significantly increased in both time points after crush. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01; unpaired t test. Scale bar 50 μm
