From: Immunocytochemical characterisation of cultures of human bladder mucosal cells

Primary culture ++ (n = 2) ++ (n = 2) +++ (n = 2) ++ (n = 2) ++ (n = 2)
Anti-fibroblast eluted ++++ (n = 7) ++ (n = 5) 0 (n = 2) ++ (n = 7) +++ (n = 4)
Anti-fibroblast bound ++++ (n = 7) 0 (n = 5) 0 (n = 2) +++ (n = 5) +++ (n = 7)
  1. The results are expressed as follows: 0 (no staining detected), + some staining (1-10% of total area of growth with positive staining), ++ (>10 - 40% of total area of growth with positive staining), +++ (>40 - 70% of total area of growth with positive staining) and ++++ predominant staining (>70 - 100% of total area of growth with positive staining).
