Table 2 Analysis of immunohistochemical data: P values for analysis of CDMP1 and 2 expression in different areas of disc in non-degenerate v/s degenerate discs

From: Expression of cartilage-derived morphogenetic protein in human intervertebral discs and its effect on matrix synthesis in degenerate human nucleus pulposus cells

IVD area analysed for CDMP expression Intermediate degeneration (P) Severe degeneration (P)
CDMP 1 expression in NP Non-degenerate v/s degenerate 0.302 0.106
CDMP 1 expression in IAF Non-degenerate v/s degenerate 0.336 0.112
CDMP 1 expression in OAF Non-degenerate v/s degenerate 0.461 0.362
CDMP 2 expression in NP Non-degenerate v/s degenerate 0.241 0.124
CDMP 2 expression in IAF Non-degenerate v/s degenerate 0.479 0.521
CDMP 2 expression in OAF Non-degenerate v/s degenerate 0.679 0.465
  1. CDMP = cartilage derived morphogenetic protein; IAF = inner annulus fibrosus; IVD = intervertebral disc; NP = nucleus pulposus; OAF = outer annulus fibrosus.
