Mechanisms of Normal Mineralization in Bone and Cartilage
Despite intensive investigations, normal and abnormal calcification mechanisms are still poorly understood. The great number of theories which have been and are still being proposed reflect the complexity of the subject and the uncertainty of our knowledge.
