JERUSALEM, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
RegeneCure announced today the start of a clinical study using the company's proprietary AMCA Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) Dental Membrane as a bone stimulating aid for patients requiring dental implants.
A common problem encountered when patients have a tooth replaced with a dental implant is the lack of sufficient bone volume to house the implant. Consequently there is often a need to support the implant with a bone substitute until the natural bone regenerates. The bone substitute material, in turn, needs to be held in place by a membrane.
RegeneCure's innovative AMCA GBR membrane has important quality and safety advantages over currently-used collagen-based membranes:
The membrane is entirely synthetic, eliminating risk of contamination by pathogens present in animal-tissue-derived membranes:
The AMCA GBR membrane is strong, degrades slowly over time, giving the natural bone more time to properly regenerate;
The membrane accelerates healing by enabling excellent cell adherence, proliferation and differentiation of stem cells into the bone tissue, while preventing connective tissue from infiltrating into the healing space.
"Pre-clinical trials have shown excellent healing, including complete restoration of the bone," said Moshe Tzabari, CEO of RegeneCure, adding "Our technology is designed to improve and accelerate healing in a large variety of medical procedures."
About The Trial
A total of 32 patients suffering from insufficient bone volume for dental implant placement will be enrolled in the prospective, randomized, controlled study. One study arm, comprising 16 patients, will use RegeneCure's membrane; the other study arm, also comprising 16 patients, will use a collagen membrane. Study participants will include non-smokers and smokers,
