Human bone models in vitro

The FRAME Alternatives Lab is able to differentiate human mononuclear blood cells into human osteoclasts (bone eating cells). Osteoclast dysfunction has been observed in a variety of bone diseases including osteoarthritis. The lab is currently investigating potential therapeutic agents which will decrease osteoclast activity in arthritis and reduce bone and joint damage.
