A model for the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) crystals in cartilage observed in human CPPD crystal deposition disease has been developed using diffusion of calcium and pyrophosphate ions through a denatured collagen matrix environment at physiologic pH. This model system uses biological grade gelatin and has allowed for the study of… CONTINUE READING
