Gene test to predict nerve damage from bone cancer treatment

Scientists have found a genetic test that predicts whether bone marrow cancer treatments including thalidomide are likely to give patients a debilitating side-effect

Bone marrow-derived cells create niche to harbour cancer stem cells, say researchers

Researchers found that breast cancer stem cells are regulated by a type of cell derived from bone marrow, called mesenchymal stem cells

Synthetic bone graft recruits stem cells

A new study shows how particles of a ceramic called calcium phosphate have the ability to stimulate promising bone regrowth by attracting stem cells and 'growth factors' to promote healing and the integration of the grafted tissue.

Bone cells' branches sense stimulation

A long-standing question in bone biology has been answered: It is the spindly extensions of bone cells that sense mechanical stimulation and signal the release of bone-growth factors, according to research.

Screening test for bone disease

Scientists have discovered three genes linked to the development of Paget's disease, a painful bone condition that affects up to one million people in the UK.

Hope of screening test for bone disease

Scientists have discovered three genes linked to the development of Paget's disease, a painful bone condition that affects up to one million people in the UK.

Potential treatment for bone death

Researchers have found a potential new treatment for osteonecrosis, or the death of bone tissue, in people who are treated with steroids for several common medical conditions.

Bone marrow can harbour HIV-infected cells

Scientists have identified a new reservoir for hidden HIV-infected cells that can serve as a factory for new infections.

X-rays help predict permanent bone damage

Breast cancer patients, individuals at risk for osteoporosis and those undergoing certain types of bone cancer therapies often take drugs containing bisphosphonates.

Nutritional aspects of bone growth: an overview

The extent to which variations in the intakes of some specific nutrients by healthy, apparently well-nourished, children and adolescents affect bone mass accumulation, has received increasing attention over the past 15 years.

Collagenous protein: an important nutrient for joint and bone health

Against several opinions that gelatine has no nutritional value, it is known today and proved by several scientific and clinical studies that collagenous protein is an important nutrient especially for the health of bones and joints. Annelore Schott reports.

Bone Therapeutics’ cell therapy products

Bone Therapeutics, the leading international biopharmaceutical company focused on innovative cell therapy products for the treatment of bone diseases, announces that it has secured its future manufacturing requirements, allowing it to produce its unique bone cell therapy products on a commercial scale.

Stem cell breakthrough could lead to new bone repair therapies on nanoscale surfaces

Scientists at the University of Southampton have created a new method to generate bone cells which could lead to revolutionary bone repair therapies for people with bone fractures or those who need hip replacement surgery due to osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

New ways to treat debilitating brittle bone disease

Scientists at the University of Sheffield have discovered new ways to help detect and treat the debilitating brittle bone disease osteoporosis.

First high-resolution images of bone, tooth

Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology have for the first time made high-resolution images of the earliest stages of bone formation.
