Special Issue Information

It is well-known that bone formation is a multifactorial process that originates from an equilibrium between factors promoting or inhibiting osteogenesis. Elucidating the biologic pathways involved and their depletion is important in understanding bone physiology and predicting potential therapeutic targets to modulate bone loss.
