Signs of stem cell activity and attempted repair evident in osteoporosis beg the question, can we target these stem cells to improve regeneration?

The latest review from Future Science OA sees Dragos Ilas and colleagues from the University of Leeds (UK) ask this question, and discuss the potential answer. Covering recent research, they go on to examine gaps in our knowledge and discuss where research needs to go next in order to realise potential therapies.
