Figure 5

mMSCs fail to improve survival in experimental fatal staphylococcal TSS with or without pre-treatment with IFNγ. Kaplan Meyer survival curves are shown for HLA-DR4 mice which were treated with 2.5×105 untreated mMSCs (A, dotted line, diamond), IFNγ-treated mMSCs (B, dotted line, diamond) or PBS (A, B solid line, square) one hour prior the induction of TSS. Statistical differences were assessed by log-rank test (p=0.4280 (A), p=0.2184 (B), n=20-22/group). Data represent a pooled result from two independent experiments.
