Abstract

Scientists from a wide variety of disciplines were brought together in this group in the hope that useful exchanges of ideas would in the long-term help in our understanding of the problem of demineralization, in terms of cell biology and chemistry. A better understanding of this problem has important consequences for many areas of research. In medicine and dentistry bone demineralization is an important pathological mechanism in common and serious disorders, for examples, periodontal disease and malignant neoplasms: the fertilizer and phosphate industry, for which apatites form the raw materials, would also benefit from the application of new information.
