rhBMP-2 Versus Vivigen in Lumbar Fusion Procedures

2018-05-22 18:49:10 | BioPortfolio


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.


The purpose of this study is to compare the overall efficacy (clinical outcome and radiographic fusion) of Vivigen (cellular allograft product) and rhBMP-2 in patients who undergo a single level lumbar instrumented fusion. Specifically, when compared to their control group counterparts treated to rhBMP-2, we hypothesize that the intervention group administered Vivigen would, following surgery, experience:

1. Comparable mean postoperative leg/back pain score, where the pain scores are obtained using the numeric rating scale of 0-no pain, to 10-worst pain possible

2. Comparable inpatient length of stay (LOS)

3. Comparable postoperative Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) score (0-no disability, to 100-maximum disability possible), two weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year postoperatively

4. Comparable fusion rates, evaluated via CT scan I year postoperatively

Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone- patellar tendon autograft.

A local anesthetic of the amide type now generally used for surface anesthesia. It is one of the most potent and toxic of the long-acting local anesthetics and its parenteral use is restricted to spinal anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1006)

The local implantation of tumor cells by contamination of instruments and surgical equipment during and after surgical resection, resulting in local growth of the cells and tumor formation.

The local recurrence of a neoplasm following treatment. It arises from microscopic cells of the original neoplasm that have escaped therapeutic intervention and later become clinically visible at the original site.

The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.
