Ectopic bone tissues repaired skull defect successfully. a μCT assessment showed harvested ectopic bone tissues repaired skull bone defect effectively with time. NC stands for negative control which has no graft implantation. b At week 24 after transplantation, μCT assessments showed there was no bony overgrowth of transplanted ectopic bone graft for skull defect when compared to the MDSC-based gene therapy (bi). c Transplanted bone graft fused well with the host bone edge of skull defect with time. d Histological results demonstrated that harvested bone graft fused with the host bone tissue efficiently at week 24 post transplantation by von Kossa/eosin staining of sample section
