Access from EThOS:
Mouse calvarial organ cultures have been widely utilized for investigating the biologic behaviour of intramembranous bones. This technique can be used to analyze bone both at the tissue and at the cellular level. It also has the ability to isolate local effects from systemic factors. The aim of this study was to establish a mouse calvarial critical size defect (CSD) model for evaluation of biomaterials in vitro.
