Researcher looking through microscopeFrench researchers developed a revolutionary technique for administering bone repairing drugs which could help millions suffering from arthritis and osteoporosis.

Researchers from Strasbourg University hope the new technique will help bone and cartilage recovery thanks to the implant that gradually releases the necessary drugs (growth hormone drugs) into the body.

The new technique developed by the University of Strasbourg was tested only in the laboratory and on animals. This discovery is especially important to the elderly because in their case broken bones heal slower and may lead to permanent disability and even death.
