This manual provides technical protocols for musculoskeletal research on a translational basis, i.e. a disease-orientated approach. It offers guidance on various laboratory techniques, including cell culture and molecular biology, histology and histomorphometry, microscopy and bioimaging, laboratory animal models, CT- and MRI-based densitometry and microarchitectural analysis, biomechanics and functional analysis of orthopedic kinesiology, etc. The content is simple and straightforward, with illustrations and step-by-step procedures as an easy experimental reference for personnel in basic and clinical musculoskeletal research and education. This book will provide a unique multidisciplinary platform for various professions OCo not only orthopedics, but also biomedical engineering and biomaterial sciences OCo involving both basic and clinical medicine.q2006b), where we found that the new bone formation and its size predicted the quality of its postoperative healing quality (Wang et al. ... patellectomy model, as the PPT junction allows limited flexibility and transmission of large tensile and compressive forces (Chan et al. ... forces and cell anchorage to matrix; ac Timing of structural maturation and functional adaptation in conjunction with cell apoptosis; andanbsp;...
