2. INDUSTRY HAPPENINGS:  EVENT RECAP: The Spine Technology & Educational Group Organization – 13th Annual “Cabo Meeting” – State of Spine Surgery: A Think Tank – June 30 – July 2

Recently we participated in an exclusive meeting with some of the spine industry’s most respected professionals at the “Cabo Meeting” in Los Cabos, Mexico.  The invite-only event shed a bright light on a wide range of topics.

Highlights: The main area of interest for us was the possibility of a second generation BMP-2 (Bone Morphogenic Protein-2, a bone growth factor) product coming to market. ECM (Extracellular Matrix) — one of the main technologies Lattice is focusing on — is packed with BMP-2.

The group displayed some skepticism about the ability to get the product through the FDA in a timely manner considering the side effects associated with the current version of the product. However, allograft tissue was represented as a strong alternative.

Another particularly interesting topic was the growing perception that PEEK (Poly Ethylene Ethylene Ketone, a plastic that is shaped and milled to be used as a spinal implant) spinal implants have questionable long term biocompatibility. Again, allograft tissue was presented as a reasonable alternative.

Lattice Biologics SAB Member, Dr. Richard Guyer, Chairman of the Texas Back Institute, did a fantastic job presenting on our Extracellular Matrix (ECM) technology.  (Learn about our ECM Technology here.)
