This illustration received the RX Club Award of Excellence. It depicts an osteoclast cell within the matrix of cancellous bone. The illustrated cell is shown in its activated state in which it has developed the characteristic 'brush border' that secretes acid and enzymes involved in the decalcification and resorption of underlying bone. The smaller cells in the background are osteoblasts involved in the formation of new bone tissue.
