Despite progress in orthopedic surgery, bone and cartilage repair is a major challenge as large defects will not spontaneously heal. Recent investigations on the stromal mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) offer a new perspectivefor bone and cartilage tissue engineering. However, the standard… CONTINUE READING
