Clinical Data Presented on OrthoGlide(R) Medial Knee Implant
Date:11/28/2007

Advanced Bio-Surfaces releases data on minimally invasive alternative to

total knee replacement

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Bio-Surfaces, Inc. (ABS), announced today the availability of OrthoGlide Medial Knee Implant initial clinical data.

Data representing the first complete year of enrollment in the OrthoGlide clinical study was presented on November 10th, 2007 at the American College of Rheumatology's annual meeting in Boston, MA. The data was presented by William Arnold, M.D., Medical Director for ABS. "The OrthoGlide prospective clinical study has enrolled 92 patients with osteoarthritis of the medial compartment that met the inclusion criteria," said Dr. Arnold. "These patients would have been candidates for an invasive Total Knee Replacement (TKR) procedure."

A summary of the data includes 92 patients implanted at 6 approved sites in the United States. Fourteen of the enrolled patients have surpassed the one year implant anniversary. The demographics of the study group include an average age of 60 years, 52% male / 48% female and WOMAC Pain scores which improve from 35 pre-operatively to 72 at 6 months and 74 at one year post- operative. The most serious adverse event reported was the need to convert patients to either a unicompartmental knee or TKR. Nine OrthoGlide patients enrolled (10.2%) were converted, which is comparable to the 9% unicompartmental knee conversion rate at two years post-operative. Also important is the fact that only one patient out of 350 total implants (includes study and non-study patients) experienced a dislocation.

Dr. Arnold summarized the data by saying, "The pain relief experienced by the patients enrolled in this study, along with the return of knee function at one year is similar to TKR results but with a much less invasive procedure."
