BELGRADE, Mont., Sept. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xtant Medical Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX:BONE), a leader in the development of regenerative medicine products and medical devices, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Bacterin International, Inc., has received notification that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent No. 9,114,191 entitled "Process for Demineralization of Bone Matrix with Preservation of Natural Growth Factors." The patent covers demineralized bone matrices derived from cortical bone, which include Bacterin's branded product lines OsteoSTX®, OsteoWrap®, and OrbitalWrap® HD. Bacterin has pending patent applications in the United States to pursue protection on other aspects of its allograft processing and demineralization technologies.
"The issuance of this patent confirms Bacterin's position as a leader in allograft processing innovation," said Dr. Gregory Juda, Bacterin's Chief Scientific Officer. "This patent adds to the growing body of evidence substantiating the superior processing methodologies associated with Bacterin's allograft portfolio."
Bacterin's patented processing technologies impart ideal handling properties to allografts while simultaneously exposing native growth factors that are inherent to natural human bone. The resulting enhanced biologic activity promotes rapid healing via tissue regeneration for patients requiring bone-grafting procedures. Taking advantage of this unique combination of properties, clinical investigators evaluating Bacterin's patented demineralized bone grafts have demonstrated fusion rates greater than 97 percent in peer-reviewed, published studies.
