    Preventing childhood cancer chemotherapy-induced bone loss: a preclinical study

    This project will reveal if CXCL12 produced by apoptotic chondrocytes and osteocytes is the cause for treatment-induced bone growth defects and whether its blockade with an existing drug can protect bone during childhood cancer chemotherapy.
