BONESUPPORT and Lund University to present at Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) 2019 Annual Meeting

Lund, Sweden, 08.00 CET, 1 February 2019 – BONESUPPORT, an emerging leader in orthobiologics for the management of bone voids, today announces two oral presentations, and three poster presentations at the upcoming Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) 2019 Annual Meeting. The meeting takes place from February 2-5 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas and is the leading global forum for the presentation of high-quality, innovative orthopaedic research.

The research to be presented was carried out by Lund University in Sweden and BONESUPPORT. Professor Lars Lidgren at Lund University commented: “We are pleased to complement data to be presented by BONESUPPORT on the elution of the antibiotics Gentamicin and Vancomycin from the bone graft substitute CERAMENT® with important new findings. Our studies, performed in international collaboration, highlight the benefits of using an effective carrier platform. We find that controlled sustained local delivery of active drugs enhance bone repair and improve implant anchorage”.

BONESUPPORT CMO Dr. Michael Diefenbeck said: “The research on the CERAMENT platform by Lund University and their international co-workers reaffirms our confidence in the potential of our preclinical pipeline, focused on exploiting the drug eluting properties of CERAMENT based carriers, in meeting global unmet needs in both fracture repair and prevention. The potential of CERAMENT to elute different bone active drugs are clearly shown by the work from Lund University”

The details of the presentations are as follows:
