Jerusalem: An Israeli biotech company has developed a way to turn extra fat into new bones to replace missing or damaged bone structure.With the new findings, Bonus Biogroup based in the northern Israeli city of Haifa, will help millions of people all over the world suffering from bone diseases such as osteoporosis, bone infection and also accidents that cause irreparable damage to the bones, reported Xinhua.By making the cells grow in a scaffold after scanning the patient`s bones to determine the shape, these cells then fill a mould and make a completely new bone resembling the lost one."By using live adult cells inside the scaffold and mimicking the body`s conditions, the cells fill the cast in a matter of a few months, two or three, so the patient is ready to receive an implant that his body will not reject, because it was taken from his own body," Bonus Biogroup founder and CEO Shai Meretzki told a press conference Thursday.
