Femoral and tibial cartilage as well as synovium derived from knees of nonoperated, sham-operated and partially meniscectomized NZW rabbits were studied using fluorescein conjugated goat IgG, goat antirabbit IgM, IgG and C3. Nonoperated and sham-operated animals revealed negative or minimal staining. Cartilaginous tissues from animals after partial… CONTINUE READING
