New Research for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Human Bone

Newly published research supports the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for its ability to aid in the formation of new bone cells (osteogenesis).  Researchers created laboratory conditions exposing human stem cells to certain chemicals in order to replicate an "inflammatory state."   Inflammation is a major detrimental factor during conditions of arthritis, infections, fractures and tumors.  Conclusive results identified HBOT's ability to improve the growth of newly forming bone cells.  The study can be read in its entirety by clicking:  Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Improves the Osteogenic and Vasogenic Properties of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in the Presence of Inflammation In Vitro
