Professor Yin’s Team from College of Nano Science &Technology Published a Paper on the Treatment of Postmenopausal Osteoporosis on Science Advances

Recently, Professor Yin Lichen’s team from College of Nano Science & Technology developed a pre-osteoclast membrane-coated nanodecoy (RAW-PLGA) for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. This is the first time that cell membrane nanotechnology has been used for osteoporosis treatment, and it is also the first report of using cell membrane to clear RANKL. Therefore, this biomimetic nanomaterial provides an effective strategy for restoring osteoclast/osteoblast balance, and provides a new idea for the clinical treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. The related results were published in Science Advances (Sci. Adv. .2021, 7, abl6432)
