Osteotech's MagniFuse(TM) Distributed to 68 U.S. Hospitals as Product Revenue Surpasses $1 Million

EATONTOWN, N.J., March 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Osteotech, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSTE), a leader in the emerging field of biologic products for regenerative healing, announced today that its MagniFuse™ Bone Graft has generated its first $1 million in revenue during the four month period beginning with the limited launch of the product in late October 2009.  Osteotech began the first phase of its strategic limited launch of MagniFuse with the release of three procedure specific forms for posterior cervical and posterolateral spine fusion and spinal deformity procedures.  Since that time, the Company has successfully executed its multi-step launch strategy and will highlight a national launch at the upcoming American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

"We are pleased with the initial, positive surgeon feedback on MagniFuse and based on the convergence of science, technology and economic benefit, we believe MagniFuse's unique characteristics can redefine the area of bone grafting," said Sam Owusu-Akyaw, Osteotech's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We are equally pleased with the high level of enthusiasm among our sales team as they become educated on MagniFuse's unique features, benefits and competitive price point.  Similarly, we are also rapidly gaining traction in the broader surgeon community as the clinical benefits of MagniFuse become more widely known.  The preliminary human clinical data from the first MagniFuse surgical case just became available and appears to show robust bone formation in a posterolateral spine fusion at the six-month time point.  We believe this early data, complemented by the non-human clinical data we already have and an exceptional product value proposition, will all converge and support continued adoption of MagniFuse by surgeons as a go-to biologic for advanced bone grafting procedures."

About MagniFuse

MagniFuse, which has received clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration, is Osteotech's new, patented bone graft technology platform that supports a family of products for use when injury or disease creates a need for bone fusion or new bone growth.  The MagniFuse technology platform has a number of distinguishing characteristics:

  • Delivered in a unique, resorbable self-contained delivery system, MagniFuse provides an optimized scaffold that creates a highly exposed surface area comprised of 100% bone material that is shaped and oriented to provide guided bone healing.  
  • Based upon Osteotech's proprietary processing and manufacturing technologies, MagniFuse's patented formulation is derived from allograft source material that contains a higher concentration of multiple natural human growth factors.
  • MagniFuse's self-contained delivery system also allows for targeted bone formation because it reduces graft site migration once implanted.  
  • MagniFuse is also visible in radiographs, thus providing evidence of its proper placement during and after surgery.  

These characteristics and others solve many of the challenges associated with currently marketed competitive products.
