      Purpose: To assess whether acellular porcine derived xenogenic osteochondral grafts are non-cytotoxic to cells and therefore capable of allowing cellular in-growth and proliferation. A natural acellular scaffold may provide advantages over synthetic grafts in having pre-fabricated extra-cellular matrix which more closely recreates the normal cellular micro-environment.
