Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

... is why doctors encourage post-menopausal women to take calcium supplements, so that the body doesn't raid their bones for the calcium it needs. The process works both ways, fortunately, as another set of cells, called osteoblasts, rebuilds the bone when the body has excess calcium. In an average year, a ...
