Scientists at Nottingham Trent University said that such occurrences in the bone cells are also likely to play an important role in helping to limit the risk of other bone illnesses, such as osteoporosis.

The research team, which included musculoskeletal biologists and cancer researchers, aimed to identify the mechanisms involved in bone tissue regeneration and the cancer-protective actions of exercise.

They show for the first time that, following exercise, human bone cells trigger a series of events in the body linked to the cell cycle, DNA repair, and cancer—including the 'P53' gene, which is a ...
