A Study of rhBMP-2/CPM in Closed Fractures of the Humerus

2014-07-23 21:35:11 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective of this study is to assess whether fracture union is accelerated in subjects with humeral fractures (proximal,diaphyseal) treated with conservative therapy (standard of care) and a single dose of rhBMP-2/CPM compared to subjects who receive standard of care alone.

Feasibility and Safety Study of rhBMP-2/CPM for Fractures of the Proximal Femur

The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety of administering rhBMP-2/CPM as an adjuvant to internal fixation in subjects with fractures of the proximal femur.

Study Evaluating rhBMP-2/CPM in Closed Distal Radius Fractures

To evaluate the safety of rhBMP-2/CPM administered to subjects presenting with closed distal radius fractures. The key safety variables comprising this assessment are: 1) incidence of del...

Study Evaluating Changes In Bone Mineral Density (BMD), And Safety Of Rhbmp-2/CPM In Subjects With Decreased BMD

The main purpose of this study is to assess whether a locally-administered rhBMP-2/CPM injection can rapidly increase bone mass in subjects at high risk for osteoporotic fractures of the h...

rhBMP-2 Versus Vivigen in Lumbar Fusion Procedures

This study is aimed at comparing the overall efficacy (clinical and radiographic) of Vivigen, a novel cellular allograft product, and rhBMP-2 when utilized in lumbar fusion procedures.

rhBMP-2/CRM/CD HORIZON® Spinal System Pivotal Study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the rhBMP-2/CRM/CD HORIZON® Spinal System as a method of facilitating spinal fusion in patients with degenerative disc disease.

Localized low-dose rhBMP-2 is effective at promoting bone regeneration in mandibular segmental defects.

At least 26% of recent battlefield injuries are to the craniomaxillofacial (CMF) region. Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rhBMP-2) is used to treat CMF open fractures, but several compl...

Tuning the Bioactivity of Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 with Surface Immobilization Strategies.

Bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) involved therapy is of great potential for bone regeneration. However, its clinical application is restricted due to the undesirable bioactivity and relevant compl...

Early term effects of rhBMP-2 on pedicle screw fixation in a sheep model: histomorphometric and biomechanical analyses.

The effects of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) on pedicle screw pullout force and its potential to improve spinal fixation have not previously been investigated. rhBMP-2 on an...

Improving the production of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-4 in CHO cell cultures by inhibition of undesirable endocytosis.

Endocytic regulation serves a critical role in modulating the extracellular level of signaling molecules such as bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs). Unfortunately, endocytosis may result in poor yield...

Guided tissue engineering for healing of cancellous and cortical bone using a combination of biomaterial based scaffolding and local bone active molecule delivery.

A metaphyseal bone defect due to infection, tumor or fracture leads to loss of cancellous and cortical bone. An animal model separating the cancellous and cortical healing was used with a combination ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.

Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).

Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).

Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)

Fractures due to the strain caused by repetitive exercise. They are thought to arise from a combination of MUSCLE FATIGUE and bone failure, and occur in situations where BONE REMODELING predominates over repair. The most common sites of stress fractures are the METATARSUS; FIBULA; TIBIA; and FEMORAL NECK.
