About the book
Bone comprises the mechanical skeleton that is the mechanical anchor for all organs. Bone is also a highly metabolically active organ with a wide spectrum of essential homeostatic functions. The solid bony skeleton gives the ability to move and its impairment can have a highly devastating effect. Bone tissue is the most capable for regeneration and this ability is the basis for the rapidly developing biomechanical and biochemical research, with very important clinical implications.
In this book, the authors will present the highlights of basic research of biomechanical and biochemical pathways of bone homeostasis and the developing clinical methods for treatment of bone loss, either following trauma or systemic disease.
