Transplants of the epiphyseal growth plate obtained from the proximal tibia of Lewis rats at 3 weeks of age were inserted into full-thickness defects in the patellofemoral articular surface of Lewis rats at 5 weeks of age. As controls, similar surface defects were induced but no transplants were inserted. Transplants were studied immunohistochemically at… CONTINUE READING
