Top panel: Represen-tative photomicrographs of histological sections in each saline-injected and EPC-in-jected sides of skeletal muscles of normal and diabetic rats. Arrowheads indicatevascular endothelial cells detected by immunohistological staining for vWF. Bar = 50 μm.Bottom panel: Quantitative analyses for capillary–to–muscle fiber ratio of the saline-injected and EPC-injected sides of skeletal muscles in normal and diabetic rats. P < 0.001 vs. saline-injected normal rats.
