The book presents a series of talks by scientists actively engaged in research on various aspects of bone structure and metabolism. Since these papers represent the core of a symposium under the auspices of the Ciba Foundation on bone structure and metabolism, the discussion which follows each presentation is a vital and stimulating part of the book. The numerous illustrations are of excellent quality on glossy paper. The topics covered include the structure of bone from the anatomical to the molecular level; structure of bone salts; the histological remodeling of adult bone by autoradiographic study; fibrogenesis and the formation of matrix in developing bone; the mucopolysaccharides of bone; autoradiographic studies of the formation of the organic matrix of cartilage, bone and the tissues of teeth; uptake of radioactive sulfur in the differentiation and growth of cartilage and bone; in vitro uptake and exchange of bone citrate; magnesium content of bone
