    Sammanfattning : Non-union bone fractures are a standing problem for clinical treatments. It has been found that the exogenous growth factor recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) induces bone healing in potential non-union fractures. However, the currently used clinical dose of rhBMP-2 is high and causes side-effects. LÄS MER
