Preparation of biocompatible, highly homogenous graphene-hydroxyapatite hydrogel comments

by Marta Cerruti Kaiwen Hu
Recently, Graphene has shown its potential for applications in tissue engineering 1-3 . Several studies have reported and confirmd the effect of graphene G or graphene oxide GO acting as enhanced growth platform as well as osteogenic inducers for bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells MSCs to differentiate towards osteoblasts 1, 3, 4 ...

Ammonia-induced calcium phosphate on culture inserts: A novel assay to study functions of osteoclasts comments

by Christina Chen
Osteoclasts play an important role in bone remodelling process1. An in vitro assay that could assess the functions of osteoclasts, is critical for understanding the process of bone resorption and the effectiveness of anti-osteoporotic drugs...
