Stem cells capable of repairing skull, face bones

Scientists may be one step closer to a breakthrough that uses stem cells to replace damaged skull and facial bones in patients who experience a head trauma or undergo cancer surgery requiring repair and reconstructive surgery. Their finding shows that stem cells involved in skull formation are contained within this cell population. These cells are specific to the bones in the head and are very different from other stem cells involved in the formation of the bones in the legs and other parts of the body. Tests to uncover these cells could also help physicians detect bone diseases caused by stem cell abnormalities, according to the researchers.
