The effect of BMSCs transplantation on neurological function, brain edema, BBB disruption and neuronal degeneration after SAH. BMSCs treatment significantly improved neurological function (a) (n = 12/group) and reduced BWC both at 24 and 72 h post-SAH (b) (n = 6/group). Representative images of H&E staining (c) and T2-weighted MRI images (d) showing alterations in lesion volume after BMSCs treatment. The quantification of Evans Blue dye extravasation (e) (n = 6/group). Typical Fluoro-Jade C (FJC) and NeuN (neuronal marker) staining images and quantitative analysis of FJC-positive cells from the injured hemisphere (f) (n = 6/group). Data are expressed as the mean ± SEM. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 versus Sham, #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01 versus SAH + PBS group. Scale bar = 50 μm.
