bone transplant?

Lila de Tantillo Health Guide
  • What if instead of taking osteoporosis medication one could just get more bone -- a genetic match of your own -- transplanted where you've lost mass? That scenario is not yet reality, but a researcher¬†at Florida State University, Teng Ma,¬†is using adult stem cells to try to grow bone in a lab. The work is sponsored by the Department of Defense because it could help injured military personnel, but if successful such a process could have implications for those who suffer from osteoporosis and other diseases of the bone.
