Mini-BioReactor inside your body!

Adapted from ScienceDaily:

Creating new bone tissue generation technique -- ScienceDaily

Researchers from University of Texas, Arlington are investigating whether bone can be grown inside the body using one’s own stem cells. This relies on using biodegradable polymer scaffolding material, mixed with bone morphogenetic protein, or BMP, which was used to attract stem cells that in turn produced bone. The process has been successful in lab experiments on mice.

The procedure has a huge potential with bone defects, bone infections, fractures that fail to heal, congenital bone conditions, as well as bone tumors.
