Ginsenoside RG1 enhances the paracrine effects of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells on radiation induced intestinal injury

RG1-MSC-CM improves the angiogenesis of intestine in irradiated rats. (A) Immunofluorescence staining with CD31. Intestinal samples were collected and stained on day 3 after radiation. Arrowheads indicate a CD31-positive area. Scale bars 100 μm. (B) Quantification of CD31+ area fraction. Data represent mean ± SD for “hot spot” area. Each group contains at least 3 rats (3-4 section/rat). ##, P **, P
