The following article recently published in The Journal of Knee Surgery presents findings from a systematic review of clinically relevant peer-reviewed evidence pertaining to the immunology of osteochondral allografts (OCAs). The objective of the review was to elucidate theragnostic strategies for improving functional graft survival and outcomes for patients undergoing OCA transplantation. The review found that host immune responses play key roles in incorporation and functional survival of osteochondral allografts.
