The recovery of articular cartilage from atrophy induced by joint immobilization was investigated in immature dogs. In a previous study, we showed that 11 weeks of immobilization of the knee (stifle) joint of young dogs reduced the concentration of articular cartilage glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) by 13-47%. In the present study, right hindlimbs from six female beagles were immobilized for 11 weeks, as in the previous study, and then were remobilized for 15 weeks. Cartilage from the knee joint was… CONTINUE READING
