LUND, Sweden, April 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
BONESUPPORT AB, an emerging leader in innovative injectable bioceramicbone scaffolds to treat bone voids caused by trauma, infection, disease or related surgery, announces the election of Lennart Johansson to its Board of Directors.
Mr Johansson has been a Senior Advisor at Patricia
Håkan Björklund, Chairman of BONESUPPORT, said: "We are pleased to welcome Lennart to the BONESUPPORT Board. This is an exciting period for the Company and we are confident that Lennart's experience will be a valuable asset assisting us to achieve our goals."
Mr Johansson added: "I very much look forward to working with the BONESUPPORT management team and Board to help capitalize on the Company's potential to become a global leader in the management and treatment of bone disease via its unique CERAMENT[?] platform."
BONESUPPORT has developed CERAMENT as an innovative range of radiopaque injectable osteoconductive bioceramic products that have a proven ability to heal defects by remodeling to host bone in six to 12 months. Our products are effective in treating patients with fractures and bone voids caused by trauma, infection, disease or related surgery. Our lead product, CERAMENT BONE VOID FILLER (BVF) addresses important issues facing health care providers, such as avoiding hospital readmissions and revision surgery that result from failed bone healing and infection caused by residual bone voids. CERAMENT BVF is commercially available in the U.S., EU, SE Asia and the Middle East.
CERAMENT's distinctive properties as a drug eluting material have been validated in clinical practice by CERAMENT G and CERAMENT V, the first CE-marked injectable antibiotic eluting bone graft substitutes. These products provide local sustained delivery of gentamicin and vancomycin, respectively. The local delivery feature enables an initial high concentration of antibiotics to the bone defect and then a longer sustainable dose above the minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) to protect bone healing and promote bone remodeling.
CERAMENT G and CERAMENT V have demonstrated good results in patients with problematic bone infections including osteomyelitis. They are also used prophylactically in patients who are at risk for developing infection. CERAMENT G and CERAMENT V are available in the EU.
BONESUPPORT was founded in 1999 by Prof. Lars Lidgren, an internationally respected scientist who has been the President of various musculoskeletal societies. BONESUPPORT's mission is to bring people with bone and joint diseases back to an active life. The Company is based in Lund, Sweden. www.bonesupport.com
