GEM VET™ Bone Graft is a Growth-factor Enhanced Matrix developed utilizing innovative tissue engineering principles which combine a bioactive protein (an FDA Approved highly purified recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor, rhPDGF-BB) with an allogeneic device matrix (Species Specific Allograft from Veterinary Transplant Services/VTS).
This grafting system is engineered to stimulate wound healing and bone regeneration when implanted in the body by triggering a cascade of molecular events that continues even after the implanted rhPDGF-BB is gone.
As feline, canine and equine pet owners (and occasionally other species as well!); at Lynch Biologics we're pleased to make our recombinant protein technologies and devices available to the veterinary orthopedic, dental and wound surgical markets. We've partnered with Veterinary Transplant Services, Inc (VTS) to provide the specific tissue matrices and help introduce our combined technologies to Veterinarians around the world.
