Human bone tissue formation in diffusion chamber culture in vivo by bone-derived cells and marrow stromal fibroblastic cells.
Direct grafts of human cells into immunocompromised or cortisone-treated animals, either alone or within carrier materials, have been used with some success to assess the developmental capability of the grafted cells. However, identification of the donor or host origins of the generated tissue in such direct grafts is essential. In an alternative and extensively used experimental system, cells are cultured within the isolated environments of diffusion chambers, which are surgically implanted ...Expand abstract
