Topography, not chemistry, may be most important factor in bone formation

Abstract:
New insights into nanotechnology and what influences bone to heal may redirect fracture treatments from chemical stimulants to topographic influences.

"One of the myths of bone formation is, 'All we need is more chemistry: Bone will grow anywhere with the right chemical stimuli,'" said Edward J. Harvey, MD, of McGill University in Montreal.

Much discussion occurs in the areas of allograft, autograft and biologic agents, such as bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), "but that may be too simplistic," he said.
