EBJIS is a European association of orthopedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, infection specialists and microbiologists. The aim of the Society is to promote the knowledge of all infections affecting the Musculoskeletal system (bone and joint infections), and to promote the prevention and treatment of these infections.
Osteomyelitis (bone infection) is a $1.7 billion market where prolonged, long-term antibiotic therapy, repeated unsuccessful surgical interventions and the threat of amputation are the current standard of care. An increase in prosthetic infections, diabetic foot ulcers, war injuries, high-energy sports injuries, and antibiotic resistance fuel the need for more effective therapeutic solutions.
We are especially excited about this year’s EBJIS program and the prominent role of CERAMENTT with antibiotics,” said Lloyd Diamond, CEO of BONESUPPORTT. “CERAMENTTIG represents a significant advancement in the management of osteomyelitis and we are encouraged by both the clinical outcomes and high demand for the product in Europe. We remain on track for initiating FDA approval of CERAMENTTIG in the USA with the goal of making this novel solution more widely available.”
