Table 1 Tendon and lesion measurements based on transverse T1-weighted MRI at eight weeks

From: Fetal derived embryonic-like stem cells improve healing in a large animal flexor tendonitis model

  Fetal-derived Embryonic-like Stem Cell treated tendon Placebo control treated tendon  
  Median 95% Confidence Interval Median 95% Confidence Interval One-tailed P
Relative CSA 0.25 0.1566 to 0.3573 0.4 0.1654 to 0.7040 0.06
Lesion CSA 0.34 0.1463 to 0.5407 0.53 0.1069 to 1.1942 0.06
Tendon CSA 1.28 0.9489 to 1.6776 2.0 1.0088 to 1.9261 0.3
Signal Intensity 0.5 -0.7 to 2.3 2.0 0.2 to 4.3 0.07
  1. Measurements of the superficial digital flexor tendon and lesion were made 16 cm distal to the accessory carpal bone. Tendon, lesion and relative lesion cross-sectional area (CSA) and signal intensity were assessed.
