ABSTRACT Bone injuries are a major health problem. There are 7.9 million bone fractures sustained annually in the U.S. Healing is impaired in about 10% of these fractures with seriously delayed union or non-union, causing morbidity for patients and enormous healthcare costs. While strategies such as bone grafting, synthetic polymers, low intensity pulsed ultrasound and electromagnetic fields, growth factors and cell therapy are currently being used or investigated to promote bone healing, each...
