Abstract : Phase I: In vitro evaluation of allograft/host bone constructs. Status: Active. Cadaver bones have been collected and stored for subsequent testing with the custom designed nails. Phase II: In vivo study - effects of cementation and cancellous graft. Immunologic mismatching and base line values for dogs (radiographs, bone mineral density, and force plate analysis). Status: Active. On schedule. Accomplishments: (i) The original 32 dogs have been immunologically mismatched. We found 26% of the donor-recipient dog combinations evaluated were immunologically similar. While necessitating multiple combinations be evaluated, successful mismatches were obtained for all dogs in the study. (ii) Radiographic, bone mineral density, and force plate base line evaluation has been completed on all dogs. pg 1. jmd
