OBJECTIVE To establish the human osteoblasts culture system in vitro, observe the effects of icariin on human osteoblasts proliferation and expression of OPG protein, and to explore the mechanism of promoting bone formation about human osteoblast in icariin. METHODS The femoral cancellous bone pieces were obtained from the operation. The enzyme digestion method was used for culturing. The third passage of human osteoblast was taken for experiments. The cells were divided into four groups, the… CONTINUE READING
