Date:7/30/2009

y Vectors, (Jin, et al., Mol Ther, 2004 April; 9(4): 519-526); (3) Platelet-derived Growth Factor-B Gene Delivery Sustains Gingival Fibroblast Signal Transduction, (Lin, et al., J Periodont Res, 2008; 43: 440-449); and (4) Adenovirus Encoding Human Platelet-Derived Growth Factor-B Delivered to Alveolar Bone Defects Exhibits Safety and Biodistribution Profiles Favorable for Clinical Use, (Chang, et al., Human Gene Therapy, 2009 May; 20: 486-496). This body of research by the Tissue Repair Company and its collaborators demonstrates the potential safety and benefits of PDGF gene therapy for periodontal tissue repair and regeneration. In addition, a pre-clinical research study, conducted by Cardium's Tissue Repair Company, entitled Bone Induction by AdBMP-2/Collagen Implants, (Schreiber, et al., J Bone Joint Surg, 2005, May; 87(5): 1059-1068) demonstrated that local delivery of an adenovector encoding BMP-2 (AdBMP-2) in a collagen matrix rapidly induced new bone formation compared to controls.

Market Opportunity of Orthobiologics

A new and rapidly growing market in orthopedics is orthobiologics. According to one industry research report, orthobiologics is the fastest growing segment in orthopedics with an estimated growth rate of 17% and total worldwide sales of $4.2 billion in 2007. The global market for such products is projected to almost double from 2007 levels by 2012.

It is estimated that there are more than 6.8 million bone fractures annually in the United States. Of these fractures, it is reported that 5% to 10% do not heal properly due to non-union or delayed union of the bone due to the extreme severity of the fracture or because the patient is medically impaired due to an illness such as diabetes or osteoporosis or life style choices such as smoking. These non-healing fractures, known as non-union fractu
