Osteoimmunology: the interactions between bones and the immune system
Osteoimmunology has developed as a separate science, emerging from the communication between the immune system and the skeletal system. New findings have emphasised the importance of bone marrow for immunological memory. With a focus on the maxillary and mandibular bone marrow within dentistry, we are creating the new research field of maxillo-mandibular osteoimmunology as a part of integrative complementary medicine.
