Kuros Biosciences to showcase new MagnetOs products at NASS 2021 Annual Meeting

  • New products expand perioperative solutions for surgeons
  • Data to be presented on new formulation of MagnetOs that includes a collagen carrier

Schlieren (Zurich), Switzerland, 28 September 2021 – Kuros Biosciences (“Kuros” or the “Company”), a leader in next generation bone graft technologies, announced today that it will showcase new products in the MagnetOs range at the 36th Annual Meeting of the North American Spine Society (NASS), being held in Boston from September 29 to October 2, 2021.

Joost de Bruijn, Chief Executive Officer of Kuros, said: “We are on a mission to ease the burden of spine-related pain through superior biologics for better spinal fusions. These new products demonstrate Kuros’ commitment to that goal. Adding new pack sizes, new formulations and new products allows Kuros to offer a more complete portfolio of perioperative solutions to surgeons wanting the therapeutic benefits of MagnetOs bone graft.”

Kuros is expanding its current MagnetOs Putty range to include a new 2.5cc unit that is ideal for filling gaps in the spine during posterior cervical fusion procedures. The company will also demonstrate its new MagnetOs Easypack Putty, which was recently granted 510(k) clearance by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In addition, Kuros will present data for a new formulation of MagnetOs that includes a collagen carrier, and which is being designed for surgeons who prefer to mix their bone graft with blood or bone marrow aspirate.

About MagnetOs
MagnetOs isn’t like other bone grafts. It grows bone even in soft tissue thanks to its unique NeedleGrip surface technology which provides traction for our body’s vitally important ‘pro-healing’ immune cells (M2 macrophages). This in turn, unlocks previously untapped potential to stimulate stem cells – and form new bone throughout the graft. The growing body of science behind NeedleGrip is called osteoimmunology. But for surgeons and their patients it means one thing: a more efficient and predictable fusion.

US indications statement
MagnetOs Putty and MagnetOs Easypack Putty are intended to fill bony voids or gaps of the skeletal system, i.e., posterolateral spine. In the posterolateral spine, MagnetOs Putty and MagnetOs Easypack Putty must be used with autograft as a bone graft extender. The osseous defects may be surgically created or the result of traumatic injury to the bone and are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony structure. MagnetOs Putty and MagnetOs Easypack Putty resorb and are replaced with bone during the healing process.
