Introduction: The existence of circulating skeletal stem cells in the peripheral blood from different species including adult mouse and human has been found and documented. The circulating skeletal stem cells may provide a new source of stem cells that may be used for bone regeneration and tissue engineering applications. The aim of this study was to investigate the existence of circulating osteogenic stem cells in the rat peripheral blood, and to compare their osteogenic potentials with bone… 
CXCR4 Antagonism to Treat Delayed Fracture Healing
TLDR
Endogenous mobilization of stem cells by pharmacological antagonism of their homing and migration receptor CXCR4 with AMD3100 experimentally reduced delayed union development and could potentially be given as a prophylaxis to patients with fractures at risk of delayed healing or nonunion.
