Currently, bone and bone fragments with valuable stem cells are disposed as waste material during fracture-related routine operations. However, these stem cells have a high potential for
regenerative therapies as for instance in the treatment of bone fractures.
BONEBANK aims at harvesting these stem cells with new instruments and methods and to store them in a cross-border biobank.
Therefore, this useful resource can be used for therapeutic purposes or for the development of new therapies.
BONEBANK addresses various target audiences:
BONEBANK creates the preconditions for a diverse field of
applications of stem cells in the process of bone healing:
