The average number of nerves near and far from the tumor tissue in the three groups

Groups

CXCL12-treated group (n = 8)

Untreated control group (n = 10)

AMD3100-treated group (n = 10)


Number of nerves near tumor

8.73 ± 4.42*#

5.11 ± 2.39*

2.80 ± 1.19#

Number of nerves far from tumor

1.91 ± 1.10

2.22 ± 1.64

1.24 ± 0.66


F value

9.49


# The differences of the number of nerves between the CXCL12-treated group and the control group and between the AMD3100-treated group and the control group are statistically significant. (P < 0.05).* The differences between the number of nerves near the tumor and the number of nerves far from the tumor in CXCL12-treated group and untreated control group are statistically significant (P < 0.05).
