SCHLIEREN (ZURICH), Switzerland, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kuros Biosciences (SIX: KURN) today announced the publication of data from a clinically-relevant preclinical model comparing MagnetOs with autologous bone in instrumented posterolateral spinal fusion in sheep. Utilizing multiple assessments for fusion, the study concluded that MagnetOs is a suitable alternative to autograft when used as a standalone graft.
The publication, which is entitled "Biphasic calcium phosphate with submicron surface topography in an Ovine model of instrumented posterolateral spinal fusion” was included in the December issue , an open-access journal.
Joost de Bruijn, Chief Executive Officer of Kuros, said: “This latest study demonstrates early bone healing and physiologically-appropriate graft resorption for MagnetOs in this clinically-relevant model of posterolateral spinal fusion and adds to the growing body of evidence proving that MagnetOs is a reliable alternative to autologous bone graft.”
Professor Bill Walsh, University of New South Wales, Australia, who was principal investigator of the study said: “I’ve investigated many of the leading synthetic bone grafts in this model and, in my experience, MagnetOs leads to the most compelling fusion outcomes of all the grafts I’ve tested.”
