Table 3 Distribution of Ki67-positive and -negative follicles according to the established and modified isolation protocols. Follicle developmental stages were compared between the previous and modified isolation protocols

From: A modified and tailored human follicle isolation procedure improves follicle recovery and survival

Follicle stage Established (n = 29) Modified (n = 15) p-value
Ki67 + Ki67 - Ki67 + Ki67 -  
Primordial 1a 28 0a 15 1.000
(3.4%)   0%   
Primary 3b 26 0b 15 0.5402
(10.3%)   0%   
Secondary 4c 25 1c 14 0.6467
(13.8%)   6.7%   
  1. Different letters (a, b, c) in each row indicate significant differences (a, b, c p < 0.05)
