Mechanism of Action Animation: What Makes Us Different
i-FACTOR Bone Graft is the only biologic bone graft made of a synthetic small peptide (P-15) bound to an anorganic bone mineral (ABM). This unique combination creates a surface-bound “Attract, Attach, Activate” mechanism of action that enhances the body’s natural bone healing process. Being surface-bound, all cellular activity resulting from P-15 attachment is restricted to the implant surface so bone cannot grow where it doesn’t belong (ectopic bone growth).
i-FACTOR Bone Graft is not a morphogen so, unlike engineered growth factors, the signals sent following P-15 attachment in a bony site only activate cells that are pre-programmed to become osteoblasts.
Bone Grafting Options & Evidence
In the lecture presentation “Bone Grafting Options & Evidence”, company President and COO Jeff Marx analyzes the market for bone void fillers and bone graft substitutes. Dr. Marx uses the broader bone grafting market to introduce i-FACTOR Bone Graft and explain why it is a novel and advanced biologic.
