Assessment of immunopositive staining for CDMP 1 and 2 in human intervertebral discs. Percentage of cells with immunopositivity for (a) cartilage derived morphogenetic protein (CDMP) 1, (b) CDMP 2, according to location in the disc and grade of intervertebral disc degeneration (n = 30). Data are presented as means ± standard error.* P < 0.05 compared with non-degenerate discs.
