Recently, a scientific discovery has been made that is believed to have huge implications for regenerative medicine. The scientists involved have uncovered a new bone-forming growth factor, which may reverse the bone loss associated with osteoporosis.
What is Osteoporosis?
Meaning “porous bone,” osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when your body loses too much bone, produces too little bone, or a combination of the two. Because of this, your bones lose density or mass and contain abnormal tissue structure. Depending on the severity of your osteoporosis, your bones may be more susceptible to break from a fall, or in serious cases, from sneezing or minor bumps.
