Table 2 VIP immunohistochemical results in each group

From: Therapeutic effect of vasoactive intestinal peptide on form-deprived amblyopic kittens

Cells Positive cell number Mean optical density of positive
6-week-old control group 107.00 ± 15.04 3628.46 ± 992.79
6-week-old deprivation group 38.70 ± 24.39 1836.87 ± 980.49
9-week-old normal control group 128.75 ± 15.51 4181.37 ± 811.04
9-week-old VIP intervention group 69.20 ± 11.93 2955.82 ± 816.14
9-week-old Sefsol intervention group 58.15 ± 12.93 2565.91 ± 658.85
9-week-old amblyopia non-intervention group 60.10 ± 11.20 2510.35 ± 588.32
  1. At the age of 6 weeks, the number of VIP positive cells and the average optical density in the control group were higher than those in the deprivation group (P = 0.000,0.000).At the age of 9 weeks, the number of positive cells and average optical density in the VIP intervention group were higher than those in the Sefsol intervention group (P = 0.008,0.105) and the amblyopia non-intervention group (P = 0.017,0.055), but still lower than those in the normal control group (P = 0.000,0.000)
