The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of bromelain treatment on canine articular chondrocytes in vitro. This research evaluated cell viability, levels of apoptotis and mitotis, proteoglycan concentrations and the expression of certain genes. Chondrocytes were exposed to 50 μg/ml bromelain for 4, 16 and 32 h. The rate of apoptotis in the treatment groups was significantly lower than in the control groups that were incubated with media only (P < 0.05); and the mitotic ratedoi:10.17221/3012-vetmed fatcat:ibv23lkzwrhvxmi52ggkujczd4
