Bone regeneration: stem cell therapies and clinical studies in orthopaedics and traumatology.
Bottom Line: Regenerative medicine seeks to repair or replace damaged tissues or organs, with the goal to fully restore structure and function without the formation of scar tissue.Cell based therapies are promising new therapeutic approaches in regenerative medicine.Both translational and clinical research will move the boundaries in the field of regenerative medicine, and a coordinated effort will provide the clinical breakthroughs, particularly in the many applications of bone engineering.

Mentions: The clinical indications for the cell or a hybrid cell and scaffold graft have to be precise and well defined. In this part, we discuss potential clinical indications for stem cell therapy, and the choice of type of cell therapy approach that may be appropriate for which clinical indication (Fig. 4).
