For the experimental animals, eight rabbits were chosen. A bone defect was made and was filled with 1% atelocollagen gel including rhBMP-2 10 microg. The reconstruction course was observed using micro-computed tomography (muCT) in vivo. In muCT observation, the density was slightly elevated at the bone marrow side at day 7, and the phenomenon gradually… CONTINUE READING
