|Title:||An immunohistochemical investigation on the expression of BMP-2, VEGF and Type X collagen in the sheep mandibular distraction zone: a pilot study / Con Vanco.|
|School/Discipline:||Dental School (Orthodontics)|
|Abstract:||"Distraction osteogenesis is a surgical technique employed for bone lengthening and reconstruction of skeletal deformities. It is a biological process of new bone formation between bone segments gradually separated by incremental traction". "The purpose of this research was to conduct a pilot study to determine whether immersion fixation is adequate for evaluation of BMP-2, VEGF, Type X collagen expression in a sheep model using immunohistochemical techniques, and to evaluate the expression of these factors during the different stages of distraction osteogenesis." --leaf 14.|
