rMSCs increased axonal outgrowth up to 240 days after crush. (a, b) Photomontages of confocal images of optic nerve sections 60 d.a.c. and injection of vehicle (A) or rMSC (b). RGC axons were anterogradely labeled with cholera toxin (b) conjugated to Alexa 555 (CTB-555). The asterisk indicates the crush site. (c, d) Quantification of axons at increasing distances from the crush site at 60 (c) and 240 (d) d.a.c. *P < 0.05; two-way ANOVA with Holm-Sidak’s multiple comparisons test. Scale bar 250 μm
