Immunization of host mice to homograft tissues prior to subcutaneous implantation of homograft bone' within diffusion chambers did not prevent new bone formation on the host side of the filter, thereby indicating its origin from host cells in response to a diffusible osteogenic inductor from within the chamber rather than from undetected escaping homograft cells
