Pathologic Bone Resorption and New Bone Formation in Inflammatory Arthritis

Bone remodeling is a dynamic and complex process finely orchestrated by cell interactions among bone-degrading osteoclasts, bone-synthesizing osteoblastosteoblasts, T cells, B cells, and natural killer cells. An imbalance between osteoclast and osteoblast activity results in skeletal and joint diseases including osteoporosis, arthritis, and non-union bone repair. These diseases impact the quality of life of patients.
