MAPC prevented splenic involution and modulated the peripheral inflammatory response. a Splenic weight corrected for body weight (BW). Global HI induced significant splenic involution, which was significantly prevented by MAPC; means ± 95 % CI and levels of significance are depicted, which were calculated with ANOVA (sham-SAL n = 8, sham-MAPC n = 8, HI-SAL n = 8, HI-MAPC n = 8). b IL-10 mRNA levels were significantly increased in the spleen 7 days after global HI. MAPC significantly attenuated the HI-induced IL-10 response in the spleen. c Splenic IFNγ mRNA levels were significantly increased 7 days following global HI. MAPC treatment tended to reduce IFNγ mRNA levels. However, statistical significance was not reached. d TNFα mRNA levels showed a trend to increase following global HI, which was significantly prevented by MAPC; geometric means ± 95 % CI and levels of significance are depicted, which were calculated with ANOVA (sham-SAL n = 8, sham-MAPC n = 6, HI-SAL n = 8, HI-MAPC n = 8). *P ≤ 0.05, §P ≤ 0.01, #P ≤ 0.001.
