The percentage of collagen released in accumulation in the media and the percentage of collagen that remained in the cartilage explants under different conditions. The amount of collagen released in the media and the amount of collagen remaining in the digested cartilage were determined as described in the Methods section. a, b The change in percentage of collagen released that was accumulated in the media under various conditions and normalized against the percentage of collagen released on day 0. c, d The percentage of collagen that remained in the cartilage explants after the end of the experiment. Values are presented as mean ± SD (n = 3). #, * = p < 0.05; ##, ** = p < 0.01 versus control (#) or versus the combination of TNF-α and OSM treatment (*). Data represents 3 separate explant samples
