From: Mesenchymal stromal (stem) cells suppress pro-inflammatory cytokine production but fail to improve survival in experimental staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome

Figure 3

Neither hMSCs nor TSG-6 improve survival in experimental fatal staphylococcal TSS. Kaplan Meyer survival curves are shown for HLA-DR4 mice which were treated with 2.5×105 hMSCs (A, dotted line, diamond), human recombinant TSG-6 (B, dotted line, diamond) or PBS (A, B solid, square) one hour prior to the induction of TSS. Statistical differences were assessed by log-rank test (p=0.7327 (A), p=0.7258 (B), n=20-22/group). Data represent a pooled result from two independent experiments.
