Putty heals broken bones in days
Scientists from the University of Georgia Regenerative Bioscience Center used adult stem cells to produce a protein involved in bone healing gel. The putty provides full load bearing capabilities. Once its implanted into the site of a fracture bone, it rapidly restore a patient to ambulatory function while healing. Fracture Putty has already been proven to work in animals, and It could be two or more years until human studies are done. The putty aims to reduce rehabilitation time and the elimination of infection and secondary fractures. It's expected to be used in military and civilian emergency rooms.
