    Stryker and Osiris step into the bony void

    Source EP Vantage
    Company Stryker, Medtronic, NuVasive, Osiris Therapeutics, Wright Medical Group
    Tags Comment, USA, Launches, Medtech, Cell Therapy, Musculoskeletal, Free Content
    Date March 30, 2015
    Biological grafts for orthopaedic applications have had a troubled history, with products from both Wright Medical and Medtronic getting caught out by safety concerns. But Osiris Therapeutics has form when it comes to cellular and biological products – back in 2012 it obtained the world's first approval for a stem cell therapy – and with help from its partner Stryker , may yet succeed in this contentious market.

    Bio4 , a bone allograft that contains both bone-forming cells and growth factors, was launched in the US at the weekend, three months after Osiris forged a licensing agreement with Stryker . Osiris is focusing hard on its biosurgery franchise, but reimbursement pressures are ever-present.

    Bio4 was formerly known as OvationOS , and is a bone matrix designed to fill bony voids and to aid bone regeneration after foot and ankle surgeries. It is intended as an alternative to autografting, and has the advantage of avoiding the initial bone-harvesting procedure necessary for autografts.

    Growth factors

    According to Osiris , the graft provides a structural bone matrix, osteoinductive and angiogenic growth factors, and bone cells including mesenchymal stem cells and osteoblasts.

    The growth factors are intriguing. Both Wright’s Augment and Medtronic ’s spinal graft Infuse ran in to difficulties because they contained recombinant growth factors – platelet-derived growth factor and bone morphogenetic protein-2 respectively – that have been associated with cancer risk. It is not known which factors Bio4 contains.

    Bio4 has at least passed muster at the FDA; it is approved for sale under regulations concerning cellular and tissue-based products. That said, it should be remembered that Infuse was FDA-approved too, despite later trials showing that it was no better than bone grafts and that it increased the risk of cancer (Infuse trials backfire on Medtronic with negative findings, June 18, 2013).

    But Bio4 differs from these products in that it contains cells too. Here Osiris ’s core expertise comes into play; it launched Osteocel , a preparation of allogeneic bone cells, including mesenchymal stem cells and osteoprogenitor cells, in 2005. And it sold the business to NuVasive , the fourth-largest player in bone fillers, for $85m plus milestones three years later.

    Allograft

    Stryker puts the cellular allograft market at around $200m, relative peanuts for the second-largest orthopaedics company in the world. But off-the-shelf, or allogeneic, grafts are appealing, reducing treatment time and avoiding the costs of the initial harvesting procedure.

    Bio4 is cryopreserved and stored in special freezers at -80 degrees Celsius; customers have the product shipped to them on dry ice. This does involve management of a cold chain, but is still more convenient than autografting – Bio4 is ready to use as soon as it is unpacked.

    Pricing, however, will be a concern, even with the marketing power of Stryker behind the technology. Being cheaper than autograft will be a start, but pressures on reimbursement are, as always, a fact of life.

    This year the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reduced the bundled hospital outpatient department rate for Osiris ’s Grafix stem cell wound-healing product, and it would not be a surprise to see Medicare limiting its payment for Bio4 too. Stryker will have to judge this carefully if it wants to grow the market.

    The company has already provided you with all the facts you should need. The former auditing firm BDO resigned suddenly. Lode resigned suddenly. Jon Hopper was suddenly terminated. Bobby Dwayne became mysteriously ill and resigned suddenly. Keep trying to defend the indefensible while you tell yourself that Osiris is the victim. LOL. I suggest you write the SEC and have them open an internal victim investigation. Less

    "If you sell or sold you have sold at the low" He hasn't sold for the low. He got $5 more than you will get soon. Osiris will evaporate while you wait on financial statements that aren't coming. He needs to wait and hear the truth? Innocent men don't resign suddenly and for no reason if they haven't committed impropriety. Somebody will eventually tell the truth, but it will be to the prosecutor at the Department of Justice. Less

    Think of the bright side. The company can't continue to miss revenue and earnings numbers if they don't produce financial statements. That Lode was sure one clever guy.

    The buyer at $5

    What happened to the "big" buyer at $5 who was lending supposed support to the share price? Did he get his fill, or did he get ill like Bobby Dwayne Montgomery?

    E&Y won't certify fraudulent statements and they won't accept bribes either. Difficult to move forward before you deal with the past. The Feds are watching every move now too. Rough spot for shareholders and just slightly more than 60 days remain before delisting. Maybe Dresner can get it done, but if he could have then he would have already. Shame Lode had to put you in this position. Less

    "Wouldn't it be ironic if Osiris turned profitable an no one knew yet" That would be ironic. What is far more likely is Osiris will be delisted September 12 for failing to file fully audited financial statements.

    "I keep thinking that Osiris might combine/merge companies with Mesoblast for their mutual benefit" What a nice fairy tale ending. OSIR merges with MESO to avoid Federal prosecution in the US and moves to Australia. Just a couple of problems with this fairy tale. Neither MESO or OSIR have much cash, and the Feds will prosecute regardless. MESO stock and OSIR stock are both near their bottoms for very good reasons. MESO just lost a large partner, and Stryker could bail on Osiris at any time. Less

    Still no financial statements. Your comments mean about as much as the comments made by Lode and Bobby Dwayne, and those comments mean ZERO. I put it in caps for you so you would understand. Nobody believes a thing this company says anymore. How much cash is left on hand now? I'm not interested in the comments made by Bobby Dwayne either. He no longer works for the company, but more importantly, the comments he made were ILLEGAL. Less

    "all the street wants are the financials. some of us have our own channel checks" Are channel checks similar to channel stuffing? " there was good reason why OSIR was trading at 20 before the accounting fiasco" Channel stuffing and cooking the books are not an accounting fiasco. They are fraud and they are illegal activities.

    "bio4 has the weight of striker behind another impressive product" It is Stryker and not striker. Were you raised in a bowling alley? Stryker has been lowering the price for BIO4. If the Department of Justice proves fraud, Stryker may bail out on Osiris altogether.

    "there was good reason why OSIR was trading at 20 before the accounting fiasco". Pure greed and insanity were the only reasons this stock ever traded above $20. More importantly though, it will never trade above $20 again.

    "it may be about insider trading involving petitcoat and witteless. in any case it is about individuals and not the company." I actually pity some of the shareholders who have lost so much money, but I can't pity stupidity. You deserve everything you have lost already and the additional amount you are about to lose soon. You sound just like a politician with talking points, and a lousy politician too. Keep telling yourself that Osiris is just the victim. It makes your massive losses more palatable that way. Less

    The deadline for delisting is September 12. Still plenty of time, but you have to believe now that there is a serious problem. They couldn't file in the past 6 months so what good is another 10 weeks if that dirty 5 letter word is raising its ugly head. I'm not talking about Ozark or Mania either.

    It has been six long months but still no financial statements, and Lode said it was just a couple of distributor contracts. LOL. Then Bobby Dwayne said the accounting issues really weren't a big deal. LOL. What happened to Lode? Why did Bobby Dwayne become ill? Where are the financial statements?

    They said the financials would be out in June, but if Osiris is true to form, they will release them Friday afternoon at 5pm. or immediately before the July 4 holiday. It is like taking two questions on a conference call and abruptly ending the call. The less people know the better. They will have to face the music and answer the questions this time though if they hope to stay in business. Less

    You would think management would have their hands full with the SEC investigation, the Department of Justice, the swarming class action lawyers, and the lawsuit from MDXG. If they spend their days reading message boards, they deserve to go out of business.

    You seem to have a real fascination with this guy Pete. You talk about him all the time. You refer to him on a first name basis. You are totally obsessed with him in a way that isn't healthy. Yesterday you were questioning his audacity for having his own website. Who cares? Plenty of people have websites. You can create one in less than an hour for next to nothing. You post more on this message board about Pete Petit and MDXG than you do about your failing Osiris. Are you jealous that MDXG has a CEO? Did this Pete guy steal your lunch money? This is an Osiris message board. Lets keep the subject to Osiris, the 80% you have already lost, and the additional money you are about to lose soon. Less

    I compared the performance of OSIR to DSCI and MDXG during the past three trading sessions. DSCI is +4%. MDXG is +8%. OSIR is -4%. If Osiris is stealing market share from anyone, the market isn't buying it.

    frasoda80, in my opinion you're allowing your emotions get the best of you. You are here and reading this message board and concluded the bashers or basher is/are correct. They are not short, they have no courage or money to short.

    If you sell or sold you have sold at the low without allowing yourself to wait and hear the truth and other side of the story from OSIRIS.

    Arthrex, Stryker, Doctors, VA, BCBS, Medicare, David Dresner, the entire OSIRIS team and many others say otherwise.

    I'm holding for the high rewards, the story is ready to unfold and those with patience will be rewarded with unimaginable wealth, scientifically and financially.

    Most retail investor buy in the highs and sell in the lows. Ozark is correct, we will see triple digit and more. Don't let the fools influence of why you originally became a shareholder in OSIRIS.
