Scientific Journal Gene Therapy Reports That Cardium's Gene Activated Matrix Technology Accelerates Periodontal Tissue Regeneration
Date:9/14/2009

lograft and synthetic graft materials. Based on recently announced formulation advances, Osteorate would be developed as a pre-mixed ready-to-use-syringe that would be stored in a physician's office at a temperature of about 4 degrees Celsius. PDGF-B protein is a well known bone growth mediator and is already used in several FDA approved products and medical devices for soft and hard tissue healing.

The Gene Activated Matrix technology platform is expected to be further expanded with the use of other genes capable of promoting bone repair, in order to biologically enhance surgical spinal fusion procedures in patients with degenerative disc disease. Exemplary genes include a chimeric variant of BMP-4 (chBMP4), which offers the potential for the localized and sustained cellular expression and release of Bone Morphogenetic Protein-4 (BMP-4) to potentially enhance spinal fusions. 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. The chBMP4 variant is believed to be even more effective for orthobiologics applications such as bone repair.

Cardium plans to explore potential collaborations with other companies in the orthopedics space, including orthopedic device manufacturers and others having an interest in developing novel approaches designed to improve the healing and regeneration of bone following traumatic bone injuries, which are affecting a substantial and increasing proportion of the human population as patients survive to older ages along with general improvements in medicine and healthcare.
