Bone Cell Biomechanics, Mechanobiology and Bone Diseases provides a comprehensive overview of recent knowledge and advances of bone cell biomechanics and related bone diseases, highlighting the cellular basis for bone responding to mechanical stimuli. The book not only provides a general overview of bone cell biology, but also the most recent advances of bone cell biomechanics, mechanobiology, the relationship between bone cell biomechanics and bone diseases, as well as the underlying mechanism. This will be useful in understanding the role of mechanobiology in bone health and bone diseases, as well for investigating novel strategies for diagnosis and therapy of bone diseases.
Cells covered in the book include osteocyte, BM-MSC, osteoblast, osteoclast and chondrocyte. Cone diseases covered are osteoporosis, scoliosis and osteoarthritis. This comprehensive reference is written for researchers, scientists, clinicians and students.
