Date:2/1/2010

GEORGETOWN, Texas, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Intralink-Spine Inc. (ILS), a privately held medical device company focused on the treatment of degenerative disc disease and low back pain, announced today that it has been awarded a $750,000 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for pre-clinical studies of its NEXT technology.  

Dr. Thomas Hedman, Ph.D., Founder and CSO of ILS, commented: "Securing this grant enables us to complete pre-clinical testing and start First-in-Man clinical trials.  This grant also underscores the mounting enthusiasm for our unique injectable treatment for low back pain, which affects over 15 million people each year in the US alone."

The technology, NEXT (Nonsurgical EXogenous crosslink Therapy), is based on the body's natural response to heal instability and degradation of the spinal disc.  The NEXT device is designed to immediately strengthen and stabilize the disc, reducing disc bulge and pain without the costs and risks associated with surgery.  Dr. Hansen Yuan, M.D., a leader in spine surgery, added: "This injectable tissue reinforcement procedure can provide an effective treatment for patients who are either early in the disease process or adverse to surgery."
