Leader Biomedical introduces Spine Portfolio with targeted therapeutic solutions
Amsterdam | 19 July 2018 |
Leader Biomedical introduces new Spine Portfolio with the launch of three targeted therapeutic solutions Adcon® Gel, Hyalosyn™ Gel, and Vebroplast® addressing adhesions, joint mobility, and vertebral compression fractures, respectively.
Adcon® Gel is a biocompatible resorbable gel that provides a barrier to inter-tissue adhesions and inhibits fibroblast migration. The result is improved patient rehabilitation, reduced recurrent pain, and decreased number re-operations as a result of such adhesions. Adcon® Gel has been used and proven in over 300,000 cases and in more than 10 clinical studies since 1996.
Hyalosyn™ Gel is a sodium hyaluronate viscoelastic solution in a syringe for long-term effect on improved joint mobility, suitable for intra-articular injection into all synovial joints. Hyalosyn™ Gel is manufactured by unique biotechnological synthetic fermentation, ensuring a high purity with no microbiological residues. Hyalosyn™ Gel has an extensive clinical history of more than 10 years with proven pain relief and treatment of degenerative joints.
Vebroplast® is biocompatible acrylic (PMMA) spine cement used for the strengthening, fixation, and filling vertebrae after a vertebral compression fracture (VCF) through a quick and relatively safe intervention. Vebroplast® further contains barium sulphate used to improve visualisation under fluoroscopy and its composition ensures biomechanical strength and firmness maintaining penetrative and fixing properties while injecting it under low pressure.
Leader Biomedical’s Spine Portfolio is completed with eTiss® allografts processed and cleaned with our proprietary eCOO® Technology utilising super critical carbon dioxide (scCO2) and the OssGro® and Ossfinity® line of synthetic grafts produced with MBCP™ Technology, a proprietary method composed of 60% HA and 40% βTCP. To further augment the Spine offering, Leader Biomedical will shortly introduce mixing and delivery systems for vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty.

This further supports the company’s commitment to contribute to the betterment of the global healthcare community thus extending the reach of patients and caregivers by improving global access to reliable, targeted therapeutic solutions and new technologies.
