Alternatively, emulating the spatiotemporal cascade of endogenous factors through controlled drug delivery may To achieve translation of cell-based therapies, there are provide superior bone regenerative approaches. Surgically many hurdles to overcome. For bone regeneration, mesen- placed drug depots have clinical indications. Additionally, chymal stem cells (MSCs) are commonly used, as they can noninvasive systemic delivery can be used as needed for differentiate to cells required for bone healing (osteoblasts poorly healing bone injuries.

A challenge to the speciﬁcity toward proteins, cells, and molecules within the use of any cell type is assurance of cellular uniformity.
