Aperion Biologics Initiates Clinical Trial of Z-Lig™ Device for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
Date:2/11/2011

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aperion Biologics, Inc. announced the enrollment and implantation of the first patients in the Company's clinical trial of its Z-Lig™ Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction (ACLR) Device for the treatment of ligament injuries of the knee.  The primary objective of the multicenter study is to provide additional evidence of the safety and performance of Z-Lig in the reconstruction of patients' knees with primary ACL ruptures.  Seven sites in Europe and one site in South Africa are participating in this clinical trial.  Dr. Willem van der Merwe of the Sports Science Orthopaedic Clinic in Cape Town, South Africa said, "We are pleased to be part of this cutting-edge study.  Graft options are limited for ligament reconstruction procedures and Z-Lig could prove to be a tissue alternative which would enhance the world of ACL reconstruction surgeries."  The study results will be used to support regulatory approvals and clinical acceptance of the Z-Lig ACLR device in select markets outside of the United States.

"Initiating the Z-Lig ACLR clinical trial is an important step not only for our technology and the Company but also for the field of orthopaedics," said Daniel R. Lee, Aperion Biologics' CEO.  "Z-Lig ACLR represents an opportunity to provide a biologic graft sourced from non-human tissue.  This device is a functional scaffold which supports the regeneration of the patient's own tissue.  It has been a long-standing goal for surgeons and the industry globally to have a readily available, off-the-shelf ACL graft."

The ACL is the most commonly injured knee ligament.  Over 800,000 knee ligament reconstruction surgeries are estimated to be performed each year worldwide.

Further information on the Z-Lig study is also available on www.ClinicalTrials.gov.
