CARLSBAD, Calif., April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Biologica Technologies, LLC (the "Company" or "Biologica") announced today that they will be showcasing their latest clinical data for ProteiOS growth factor at this week's Midwest Podiatry Conference held in Chicago, IL.
ProteiOS is a unique, first of its kind allogeneic-derived growth factor that offers a number of distinct advantages over current products for foot & ankle arthrodesis. Other growth factor products used in foot & ankle fusion are comprised of one sole growth factor, whereas ProteiOS provides a full array of osteoinductive, angiogenic, chemotactic, and mitogenic growth factors. ProteiOS for foot and ankle fusion was launched via a targeted release in Q1 of 2018 and is now available across the USA.
Dr. Brian J. Burgess, staff physician at Hinsdale Orthopaedics and Department of Orthopedics Clinical Assistant Professor at Loyola University, commented, "I have found ProteiOS to be both predictable and safe in improving outcomes in my fusion patient population." He also added, "It provides reproducible results in a safe and economical way."
"We have been excited about the reception of ProteiOS with foot and ankle surgeons," stated Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Scott Cadotte. "Just as we have seen with spine surgeons, the early clinical results combined with the ability for a surgeon to use their preferred scaffold has been received very positively."
