Researchers at the University of Twente break new ground by successfully creating bone tissue 'in vivo,' using embryonic stem cells. They imitated bone formation in embryos and children, which uses cartilage as a template. This new approach appears to be a promising way of repairing bone defects. This week, the researchers' findings are presented in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences...
