Abstract
Understanding the mechanobiology of joint loading is essential for progress in treating osteoarthritis as well as other degenerative joint diseases and to help engineer cartilage tissue replacements. This study examines articular joint tissue changes resulting from in vivo cyclical loading in a rabbit model. This new animal model has the potential to advance our understanding of adult endochondral ossification and degenerative joint disease.
