ABSTRACT
Artificial bones grown in a lab may one day be used as an alternative to today's ceramic and metal devices. Brigham and Women's hospital researchers found that in the presence of synthetic silicate nanoplatelets, commonly known as layered clay, human stem cells form bone material on their own. The study could lead to engineered replacement bones.
