Phase I In vitro evaluation of allografthost 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
