Cover legend

The cover picture illustrates a sagittal paraffin section of a rat demineralized bone matrix implant containing cartilage and bone tissue formed by bone marrow cells treated in vitro with recombinant human osteogenic protein-1. Picrosirius-hematoxylin staining. For more details see article by Andrades et al. in the present issue.
