Collagen Matrix, Inc. Launches OssiMend(TM) Bone Graft Matrix for Orthopedic and Spine Applications
Date:10/23/2007

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Collagen Matrix, Inc. announces the launch of its OssiMend(TM) Bone Graft Matrix for orthopedic and spine applications. OssiMend is an all-natural mineral-collagen composite bone graft material which, combined with autologous bone marrow, is used to fill bony voids or gaps of the skeletal system, including spine, extremities and pelvis. OssiMend is conformable, non-friable, has a high absorption capacity, and is ideal for use in spine fusion procedures.

OssiMend is a composite matrix available in strips, pads, or granular form for surgical implantation. The principle components of OssiMend are type I collagen and anorganic bone mineral. The natural anorganic bone mineral is derived from bovine cancellous and cortical bone. Due to its natural structure, OssiMend is physically and chemically comparable to the mineralized matrix of human bone. The mineral particles are dispersed within highly purified type I collagen fibers forming a three-dimensional open porous matrix for use as an osteoconductive material. The addition of autologous bone marrow further enhances the bone forming capability of the product from bone inductive factors and bone forming cells in the bone marrow. OssiMend is provided as a sterile, dry material that is hydrated with autologous bone marrow at the point of use. OssiMend strips and pads can be cut into shapes and are designed to retain their shape and physical integrity following implantation into a bony site, while the granular form can be molded to fit the bone defect. The product is fully resorbed during the natural process of bone formation and remodeling.

"Early launch sales of OssiMend via independent sales agents have been better than expected. Feedback from surgeons has been very positive, therefore we are enthusiastic about the official launch of OssiMend at this year's North American Spine Society meeting, October 24-26, Austin, TX. Along with OssiMend, we are introduci
