The current gold standard for treating non-healing bone fractures and diseases is to graft bone from a healthy part of the body. However, in many cases this method is not sufficient, such as the failed bone grafts for movie critic Roger Ebert, who lost his lower jaw from cancer. UC Davis researchers discuss efforts to develop new methods for repairing bone deformities and non-healing bone fractures using bone marrow derived stem cells. A clinical trial participant who has benefited from these new methods also speaks. (#24532)
