Additional file 4: Figure S3. of Intravitreal administration of multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells triggers a cytoprotective microenvironment in the retina of diabetic mice

MSC administration does not modify the presence of vascular leakage areas in the retina of DM mice. FITC-dextran was administered in the tail vein 4 and 12 weeks after the administration of MSCs or vehicle. Retinas were dissected, flat mounted and observed by confocal microscopy. Retinal vascular leakage was determined by the presence of areas of extravasated FITC-dextran marked by arrows. Qualitative data are representative of eight eyes per group and per analyzed time.
