Using a biochemical cocktail of different steroids and growth factors, the researchers demonstrated that they could "retrain" specific cells that would normally form the structure of fat into another type of cell known as a chondrocyte, or cartilage cell.
In laboratory tests, Rath found that cartilage cell death in the growth plate near the ends of the bones prevents the cartilage tissue from being replaced by new living cells and bone tissue.
