Researchers develop experimental glue which can soon fix broken bones

This effective glue could provide an optimal solution for acute bone fractures - sudden and painful damage to the bone - that often occur in the case of people with osteoporosis, a condition wherein bone tissue becomes naturally frail with age

Researchers develop experimental glue which can soon fix broken bonesDentists have known how to fix broken teeth for a long time, and different types of adhesives and methods are used depending on the damage that is diagnosed.

Interesting investigation shows how heart can turn into bone

Although poorly understood, injury and illness are known to spark transition of heart cells into bone. Research shows how this process may occur and what could help prevent it
