Disease relevance of Osteochondritis


High impact information on Osteochondritis


Chemical compound and disease context of Osteochondritis

  • In young horses with osteochondrosis, there was a significant increase of C-propeptide of type-II procollagen accompanied by a decrease in the 846 and keratan sulfate epitopes [9].
  • Activation of the complement system and adverse effects of biodegradable pins of polylactic acid (Biofix) in osteochondritis dissecans [10].
  • It was concluded that the development of osteochondrosis is associated with increased exposure to zinc and possibly cadmium [11].
  • Strontium-85 uptake in knee joints with osteochondritis dissecans [12].
  • Multinucleate cells and mononucleate cells with dense cytoplasm and a delicate periphery were seen in smears from cases with clinical diagnoses of osteochondrosis or fracture; interpretation of these cells as osteoclasts and their mononucleate precursors was supported by positive staining with tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase [13].
