Bone Therapeutics SA to present at the Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS)
Gosselies, Belgium, 5 February 2019, 8pm CET – BONE THERAPEUTICS (Euronext Brussels and Paris: BOTHE), the bone cell therapy company addressing high unmet medical needs in orthopaedics and bone diseases, today announces that the Company will present preclinical results on the potential of Company’s allogeneic cell therapy platform to stimulate bone formation and bone repair at the Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS), in Austin (Texas), USA.
The Annual ORS Meeting is the yearly summit organised by the international Orthopaedic Research Society to advance musculoskeletal research and is attended by scientists, clinicians and entrepreneurs in the field. In the poster presentation, Bone Therapeutics will highlight preclinical in vitro and in vivo results demonstrating the potent osteogenic capacity of its allogeneic bone cell therapy platform to promote direct bone-formation by recapitulating endochondral ossification and to improve fracture healing in relevant models. The results showed that the allogeneic bone-cell therapy product would be a potential promising clinical candidate for improving impaired fracture healing such as delayed-union and non-union fractures.
Poster Title: An injectable cell therapy product derived from human bone marrow MSC enhances bone repair by promoting bone formation from host and donor cells through intramembranous and endochondral ossification mechanisms
Poster number: 1599
Date: 2-5 February 2019
Location: Solar Atrium at the Austin Convention Center, Austin, Texas, USA
