- ... Tibial dyschondroplasia (TD) is an avian bone disorder of different aetiologies that may be associated with lameness. The disorder is characterized by focal disruption of endochondral bone formation, with a lack of matrix proteolysis and an accumulation of non-mineralized avascular cartilage. The aim of this study was to determine the expression of extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (E ...
