DiFUSION Technologies Completes Successful Testing of Antimicrobial Spinal Implant

robial coatings which do not fight infection past the first 48 hours. Our technology provides antimicrobial protection for 4 weeks due to 'controlled cationic release'," said Dr. Hyun Bae, a member of DiFUSION's scientific advisory board and a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon in Santa Monica, California, specializing in minimally invasive microsurgery and the treatment of cervical and lumbar spinal disease. "No other orthopaedic company has developed a technology with this kind of duration and efficacy; clearly DiFUSION is setting itself apart from the market with CleanFUZE(TM)."

In tandem with the reasonable cost of adoption, DiFUSION's solution has the potential to quickly become mandated by hospital material managers due to the fact that orthopaedic surgeons will not need to alter currently accepted surgical techniques and/or utilize new implantation instruments, while hospital and insurance carriers will not be required to implement new procedure codes.

DiFUSION intends to conduct the appropriate filings to facilitate full FDA clearance by the end of 2009. Agreements are also in place with 15 distributors and discussions have been initiated with an additional 20. This will position a U.S. sales force of 200 to 300 sales representatives to support the launch of CleanFUZE(TM). More information on CleanFUZE(TM) can be found at www.difusiontech.com.
