Abstract

Selection of the appropriate protocol is critical when studying implant osseointegration in rats. This overview highlights the demand for quality endpoint data related to animal numbers, data collection, and the way to establish osseointegration. Because of the differences in research questions, general recommendations for uniform models for osteoporosis and diabetes cannot be made.
