DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bioventus, a global leader in orthobiologic solutions, today announced a program to raise up to $10,000 for research on spine-related disabilities. Bioventus, who recently acquired the OsteoAMP® product line, intellectual property and commercial business from Advanced Biologics, will be exhibiting in booth #419 at the 2014 North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting. For each clinician member of NASS that visits the Bioventus booth, the company will donate $100 to the NASS Annual Research Fund. Bioventus is attempting to raise $10,000 during the exhibition days (November 13-15) of the annual meeting at the Moscone Center, in San Francisco.
By visiting the booth, clinicians will also learn more about OsteoAMP a tissue based bone biologic product used by spine surgeons to promote natural bone growth and healing. OsteoAMP is a bone allograft made using a proprietary process designed to retain the bone’s natural growth factor complement. It comes in four formats (granules, compressible sponges, putty, and structural grafts) and is a cost-effective alternative to recombinant growth factors and allograft-derived stem cells.
“Spine related disabilities are recognized as the leading cause of suffering worldwide and Bioventus believes products like OsteoAMP can help spine surgeons alleviate this suffering,” said Henry Tung, M.D., Vice President and General Manager of Surgical Orthobiologics of Bioventus. “However, more solutions are needed and that’s why we want to raise money for further research while the leaders in the North American spine community are together during NASS 2014. In addition, we invite clinicians to visit us so we can better understand their challenges and unmet needs.”
