  1. *The contusion only groups received a moderate contusion injury. Fourteen days after injury, OEG or Schwann cells were transplanted into the lesion site; controls received an injection of cell culture medium. Data are presented as means ± SEM.
  2. #Significantly different from the contusion only group, as determined by ANOVA plus Dunnett’s t test; p<0.05.
