Bone resorption via osteoclasts and bone formation via osteoblasts are coupled, and their dysregulation is associated with numerous diseases of the skeletal system. Recent developments in the area of mediators of osteoclastic differentiation have expanded our knowledge of the process of resorption and set the stage for new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities to treat situations of localized bone loss as in periodontal… CONTINUE READING
