During Bone Formation Nano Crystals Impact Stem Cell Fate

A master regulator for bone regeneration has been identified by scientists from the University of Freiburg and the University of Basel. Bone tissue is a nano-composite: The inorganic mineral phase so called hydroxyapatite confers the bone stability, and these calcium-containing nano crystals are dispersed in an organic framework consisting of the protein collagen. Although bone […]

New Cell Scaffold Enhances Cartilage Regeneration

Cartilage is highly important to joint function. In healthy joints, cartilage tissue provides a gliding surface that prevents friction during movement. Additionally, cartilage acts as a shock absorber to prevent damage to underlying bone. Damage to cartilage leads to many different healthcare issues, the most commonly known being osteoarthritis. As a result, there is a […]

Researchers Develop A Lab-Grown ‘Bone In A Dish’

Researchers at University of Birmingham have recently developed an exciting new method for growing bone tissue ‘in a dish’. The developed bone resembled its natural counterpart on both a structural and functional level and could be used for studying many bone-related health issues. While multiple studies have been released showing development of ‘bone-like’ structures in […]
