I have a begun a collaboration with a colleague (a surgeon) who is
interested in cartilage regeneration. My job is  to determine whether the
regenerated tissue it looks (histologically) like "real" articular
cartilage. Most of my experience is with embryonic tissues and with muscle.
I have checked with all the usual suspects (Humason's Animal Tissue
Techniques, Bancroft and Stevens, AFIP manuals) for standard techniques but
I would also like to correspond with someone who does cartilage routinely
to get some opinions about protocols that might be particularly diagnostic
for "normality."
