Table 3 VIP mRNA in situ hybridization 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 58.40 ± 11.32 2990.73 ± 712.81
6-week-old deprivation group 29.60 ± 9.13 1198.70 ± 305.75
9-week-old normal control group 73.25 ± 10.88 3518.02 ± 512.59
9-week-old VIP intervention group 49.35 ± 9.91 1973.34 ± 593.97
9-week-old Sefsol intervention group 41.40 ± 9.06 1624.99 ± 408.61
9-week-old amblyopia non-intervention group 42.40 ± 8.60 1522.86 ± 351.60
  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 = 0.012,0.037) and the amblyopia non-intervention group (P = 0.023,0.007), but still lower than those in the normal control group (P = 0.000,0.000)
