Early research suggests weakened bones treated with salubrinal experience a significant increase in strength, as well as accelerated healing in bones that have been fractured. "Salubrinal stimulates a cellular rescue program in response to stress," said Hiroki Yokota, professor of biomedical engineering at Indiana University. more
