Bone Therapeutics to present preclinical data on the osteogenic properties of ALLOB in bone repair at 27th Annual Meeting of the European Orthopaedic Research Society
Gosselies, Belgium, 2 October 2019, 7am CEST – BONE THERAPEUTICS (Euronext Brussels and Paris: BOTHE), the leading biotech company focused on the development of innovative cell and biological therapies to address high unmet medical needs in orthopaedics and bone diseases, announces that the Company will today present at the 27th Annual Meeting of the European Orthopaedic Research Society (EORS), in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
The Annual EORS Meeting is Europe's Summit for orthopaedic research and is attended by scientists, clinicians and entrepreneurs in the field. In the oral presentation, Bone Therapeutics will highlight additional preclinical in vitro and in vivo results demonstrating the potent osteogenic properties of its allogeneic bone-forming cell therapy platform, ALLOB, to promote bone-formation and improve fracture healing in relevant models.
ALLOB is the Company’s allogeneic product that consists of human bone-forming cells derived from cultured bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells of healthy adult donors, and is manufactured through a proprietary, scalable production process. ALLOB successfully completed two Phase II studies in two indications and the Company is on track to submit a Clinical Trial Application with the regulatory authorities before the end of the year to allow the start of the next clinical development phase in patients with delayed-union fractures.

About Bone Therapeutics
Bone Therapeutics is a leading biotech company focused on the development of innovative products to address high unmet needs in orthopaedics and bone diseases. Based in Gosselies, Belgium, the Company has a broad, diversified portfolio of bone cell therapy and an innovative biological product in later-stage clinical development across a number of disease areas, which target markets with large unmet medical needs and limited innovation.
Bone Therapeutics’ core technology is based on its allogeneic cell therapy platform (ALLOB) which uses a unique, proprietary approach to bone regeneration, which turns undifferentiated stem cells from healthy donors into bone-forming cells. These cells can be administered via a minimally invasive procedure, avoiding the need for invasive surgery, and are produced via a proprietary, cutting-edge manufacturing process.
The Company’s ALLOB product pipeline includes a cell therapy product candidate that is expected to enter Phase II/III clinical development for the treatment of delayed-union fractures and a Phase II asset in patients undergoing a spinal fusion procedure. In addition, the Company is also developing an off-the-shelf protein solution, JTA-004, which is expected to enter Phase III development for the treatment of pain in knee osteoarthritis.
Bone Therapeutics’ cell therapy products are manufactured to the highest GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) standards and are protected by a broad IP (Intellectual Property) portfolio covering ten patent families as well as knowhow. Further information is available at www.bonetherapeutics.com.
