    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This guide covered general guidelines for the in vivo assessment of implantable devices intended to repair or regenerate articular cartilage.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F04 on Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices, this guide was withdrawn in January 2019 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers general guidelines for the in vivo assessment of implantable devices intended to repair or regenerate articular cartilage. Devices included in this guide may be composed of natural or synthetic biomaterials (biocompatible and biodegradable) or composites thereof and may contain cells or biologically active agents such as growth factors, synthetic peptides, plasmids, or cDNA.

    1.2 Guidelines include a description and rationale of various animal models utilizing a range of species such as rabbit (lupine), dog (canine), pig (porcine), goat (caprine), sheep (ovine), and horse (equine). Outcome measures based on histologic, biochemical, and mechanical analyses are briefly described and referenced. The user should refer to specific test methods for additional detail.

    1.3 This guide is not intended to include the testing of raw materials, preparation of biomaterials, sterilization, or packaging of product. ASTM standards for these steps are available in Reference Documents.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.
