“Fracture putty” being designed for quick healing of bones.

Researchers at the University of Georgia Regenerative Bioscience Center are developing a “fracture putty” from adult stem cells that when applied dramatically speeds up the healing of a broken bone.  Currently it’s in animal trials, and the first applications may be for wounded soldiers but I’d expect it to filter down to the public if it is effective.
