Only can not think of not doing British scientists to cultivate human bones

British scientists for the first time in the laboratory to cultivate human bones, is expected in the near future for orthopedic medicine. University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde, University of Western Scotland and University of Galway researchers donated mesenchymal stem cells donated in the collagen gel. Mesenchymal stem cells are produced by the human bone marrow and can differentiate into cartilage, ligaments, tendons, fat and bones. Subsequently, the researchers with nano-recoil technology, about 1000 times per second of nano-level vibration, the collagen gel cells into the green bone cells. These bone cells can be implanted in the future, repair or replace the damaged part of the bone, the treatment of fractures, fill the hip and knee replacement after the bone gap. In view of the use of the patient’s own mesenchymal stem cells, is not prone to rejection, which can fill the larger bone gap. Bone is one of the main transplant tissue, mainly for reconstruction, orthopedic surgery. At present, doctors can only get limited bone from the patient for transplantation, not only will increase the patient’s surgical pain, but also prone to infection; and others tend to be excluded from the bones. The study was published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering. The researchers wrote in the report that the first human trial will be conducted by 2020.
