ASTM WK64460

    New Guide for Pre-clinical Testing Considerations for Materials Used to Regerate Muscle

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F04.42 | Committee F04 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This guide will provide scientifically based information concerning muscle grafts and will present the stengths and weakneses of animal models used to demonstrate effectiveness.


    Decellularized muscle; Myocyte differentiation;


    Materials used to support muscle regeneration are comparatively new, but are very much needed. There is not agreement on the best animal models for assessing effectiveness or whether materials that are used in one model will be successful in a different model. Users will include academic scientists and industry scientists.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
