  1. 10 slides with 2 sections per slide per biopsy were used to quantify the number of quantum dot (QD) positive ECFCs in week 1 biopsy samples. Each horse had 1 wound per treatment biopsied at week 1. ALL = all cell-treated wounds from week 1 biopsies from both phases of study. LOW = wounds from Phase 1 with 8 mil cells/wound. HIGH = wounds from Phase 2 with 12–16 mil cells/wound. IQR = interquartile range. Significant P values are in bold, italicized text.
