About this book

The effects of the bone morphogenetic protein family (BMP) of growth factors on bone formation are well documented, but the TGF-beta isoforms are much less studied and have the potential to shed light on the apparent redundancy of bone induction signalling. This edited book – Induction of Bone Formation in Primates – sums up the editor's 15 years of research into the osteogenic activity of the TGF-beta growth factor family, particularly in primates.

Induction of Bone Formation in Primates awakens skeletal reconstructionists, tissue engineers, and molecular and cellular biologists to the profound and important bone inductive activity of the hTGF-β3 isoform.
