Chondral and Osteochondral Defect Models:
Species available for as a cartilage repair model include: 
  • Rabbits

  • Dogs

  • Goats

  • Sheeps

  • Horses


Rabbit models are well described in the literature and are recommended by the FDA for preliminary, short-term, and proof-of-concept studies. These rabbit models permit an easy screening of compounds. 


Large animal models (goats/sheeps/horses), recommended for long- term studies, can incorporate multiple defects and are amenable to arthroscopy, CT and MR imaging.
