Researchers have found that bone marrow adipogenic lineage precursor (MALP) cells may initiate the production of osteoclasts and drive bone remodelling in osteoporosis.
In lab conditions, a new biomaterial was able to accelerate bone regeneration by boosting an immune response that encourages repair.
Drug Target Review explores the latest applications of stem cells in modelling disease, drug production and the most recent steps in regenerative medicine provided by research.
A study has demonstrated that activating bone periosteal stem cells leads to increased bone healing in mice, presenting a potential therapeutic strategy.
A pharmaceutical target has been identified by Duke University that, when activated, can reverse bone degradation caused by osteoporosis.
Scientists in the U.S. have reported findings about the mechanisms that contribute to the experience of weaker bones with age.
In a preclinical study in mice and human cells, researchers report that selectively removing old or 'senescent' cells from joints could stop and even reverse the progression of osteoarthritis.
Researchers from UPM and CSIC have employed waste from the agri-food industry to develop biomaterials that are able to act as matrices to regenerate bone and cartilage tissues, which is of great interest for the treatment of diseases related to ageing.
