(A) (a-d) In situ H & E histological cross-sections of the human umbilical cord showing the various regions [Wharton’s jelly (WJ), perivascular area (PV), subamnion (SA), amnion (AM)] from which MSCs were derived. Note individual MSCs (hWJSCs) lying in gelatinous matrix of WJ. (B) Histogram showing significantly greater numbers of MSCs (hWJSCs) in the WJ in primary culture compared to PV, SA, AM and mixed cord cultures (MC) (*p<0.05).
