The efficacy of human recombinant osteogenic protein-1 (OP-1; bone morphogenetic protein-7) in regeneration of dog larynx was examined by treating thyroid cartilage defects (1.5 cm2) in dogs with thyroid allografts covered with host perichondrium or fascia. Prior to implantation allografts were frozen, thawed and demineralized. The treatment groups were as follows: I - Allograft control implant (n = 3); II - Implants coated with 500 μg OP-1 (n = 4); III - Implants coated with 100 μg OP-1 (n = 3); IV - Implants coated with 500 μg OP-1 and covered with neck fascia (n = 3); and V - Implants extracted with 1M NaCl and guanidine hydrochloride, and coated with 500 μg OP-1 (n = 4). Dogs were sacrificed four months following surgery. Each larynx was removed, carefully dissected and a three-dimensional reconstruction of the defect area was performed on serial sections. The results revealed that the implants of control dogs remained intact with no apparent reduction in size and new tissue formation. OP-1 enriched thyroid allografts, dose dependently induced bone, cartilage and ligament-like structures comprising up to 80% of the total regenerated defect area. Boundaries of the defects healed by formation of new bone when bone resided within the old thyroid cartilage layers. Old cartilage not containing bone within its layers healed by complete integration with newly formed cartilage. Both new bone and cartilage were embedded into layers of new ligament-like tissue which expressed specific morphologic and molecular markers. The three newly formed tissues were tightly connected into a “bone-cartilage-ligament continuum” of tissues, suggesting that OP-1 served as a multiple tissue morphogen in this specific microenvironment.
