Gene Therapy and Tissue Engineering in Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine

Author: Johnny Huard; Freddie H Fu
Publisher: Boston, MA : Birkhäuser Boston, 2000.
Series: Methods in bioengineering.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English
With the development of improved methods of transferring genes into cells, new treatment options are becoming available in orthopaedics and sports medicine to aid in the healing capacity of musculoskeletal tissues. In this book, current techniques in gene therapy and tissue engineering are described in addition to their potential applications in the management of orthopaedic trauma and sports-related injuries such  Read more...
