Matrix Metalloproteinase Activity in the Stromal Cell of Giant Cell Tumor of Bone

Abstract

Giant cell tumor of bone (GCT) is a destructive and potentially metastatic bone tumour in which the characteristic giant cells have classically been considered the culprits in bone destruction. However, the neoplastic element of the tumour consists of propagative osteoblast-like stromal cells that may play a role in bone resorption. The objectives of this… (More)
