First of Several Products in Development Based On Osteotech's Proprietary Human Collagen Technology to Stimulate Natural BioRegeneration; FDA Filing Anticipated in Third Quarter 2009

EATONTOWN, N.J., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Osteotech, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSTE), a leader in the emerging field of biologic products for regenerative healing, announced today that it has initiated a pivotal clinical trial for its DuraTech(TM) BioRegeneration Matrix. The first five patients in this 60-patient trial have already been enrolled. During the study's initial cranial surgical procedures, the patients' dura mater (the tough, outermost membrane surrounding the brain and spinal cord) was successfully repaired by surgeons using the DuraTech BioRegeneration Matrix.

This pivotal clinical trial will evaluate 60 surgical patients at 30 and 90 days post-operatively to assess the safety and efficacy of the DuraTech BioRegeneration Matrix compared to historical surgical procedure outcomes. Once this trial is completed, Osteotech plans to file a medical device premarket submission, or 510(k), with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Osteotech anticipates filing the 510(k) during the third quarter of 2009 to secure marketing clearance.
