Transplantation of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-induced osteoblasts (OBs) and bone regeneration. a Transplantation protocol for rat calvarial bone defects. b MicroCT images of the calvaria at 4 weeks after transplantation in the CCD1, CCD2, and Rev1 groups (n = 3). c MicroCT analysis of bone regeneration. Comparison of new bone volume (cm3) in the regions of interest of three groups. Values are presented as the mean ± SD (n = 3). *p < 0.05. d V–G staining images at 4 weeks after transplantation. Top: CCD1 group. Middle: CCD2 group. Lower: Rev1 group. Magnified images of the new bone area are shown on the right.
