Timothy Daniels, MD Presents Results From Augment™ Injectable Bone Graft Clinical Trial

Slides from the presentation will be filed by the Company as an exhibit to a Form 8-K following the AOFAS meeting.

About Augment Injectable

Augment Injectable Bone Graft (AIBG) is being developed as an alternative to autograft in orthopedic surgery. In clinical studies, AIBG has been evaluated as a healing adjunct to fusion in hindfoot and ankle surgeries and distal radius fractures. The product is comprised of recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor and a tri-calcium phosphate and collagen carrier (rhPDGF-BB/β-TCP/collagen). At the point of use, the components are mixed and subsequently applied to the surgical site. The final consistency is a flowable paste, which can be extruded through a narrow gauge needle. AIBG is designed for controlled delivery to open surgical sites, to complement minimally invasive surgery or percutaneous delivery. It should be noted that the U.S. FDA has not approved the protocol used in the study reported here by Dr. Daniels, specifically the combining of the autograft patients from the previous Augment Bone Graft pivotal clinical trial. An additional study is currently ongoing in the U.S. and Canada which employs a 2:1 (AIBG:autograft) randomization schedule. The Company plans to utilize the historical autograft dataset as supporting documentation for future Augment Injectable regulatory filings.
