Understanding the Impact of Preservation Methods on the Integrity and Functionality of Placental Allografts Annals of Plastic Surgery: August 2017 - Volume 79 - Issue 2 - p 203–213
Results: The structure and thickness of fresh hPM were retained in vCHAM but were compromised in dHACM. Similar to fresh hPM, vCHAM contained viable cells, whereas dHACM did not. Cells in vCHAM remained viable after 4 and 7 days in culture and in an in vitro chronic wound environment and after 4 and 8 days in vivo after application to a mouse chronic wound. Staining for bromodeoxyuridine and Ki-67 did not reveal proliferative cells within fresh hPM and vCHAM. However, isolated cells proliferated in culture. Viable cryopreserved human amniotic membrane increased platelet-derived growth factor BB, hepatocyte growth factor, and epidermal growth factor levels over time and responded to chronic wound stimuli in vitro by significantly increasing levels of vascular endothelial growth factor and prostaglandin E2. Dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane showed no significant accumulation of growth factors and did not respond to chronic wound stimuli.
Conclusions: These results indicate that vCHAM retains intact, native matrix, and viable, active cells and responds to chronic wound stimuli in vitro. The inclusion of multiple layers of hPM does not compensate for structural degradation and loss of viability caused by dehydration as evidenced by a lack of functional response by dHACM. The clinical significance of these results remains to be answered.

OSIR lawyers updated the judge in the Shareholder lawsuit. It looks like target date for restatement is now by the end of September.
"The prior Joint Status Report stated that the Company had the objective of filing restated 2015 financial statements and original 2016 financial statements this summer. Osiris has made substantial progress in its restatement efforts and, although the pace of this process is controlled largely by Osiris’s independent public accountants, the Company is making every effort to complete its 2015 and 2016 financial statements by the end of September 2017."

Final of the story: Peter takes the money, we stay with nothing in his hand, and ozark will say it's a good thing .... Ps: I stay longs I want to see how stupid I am
Grafix DFU trial now completed. Expect results to be posted soon #NCT02675855
publishing the figures and nasdaq listing will have major effects on our stock price.2015 and 2016 sales and cash 2016 are known. so q1 and q2 will be the news. any major change in sales volumes will have major effect on the stock price. once figures are out, insiders are free to invest and risk arbitrage will start to buy in. i expect a jump to about $ 15 because of few shares available. return to nasdaq will bring us up to about $ 25 (6xsales) but we need good current sales figures. we may jump much higher for lack of available shares. will be interesting to see what happens !
getting back to normal valuation should be a top priority. a good opportunity to bolster our cash position by making a secondary issue was missed, when we were trading above $ 20. If our grafix work horse was not going so well, we could have gotten in serious troubles.lots of cash is needed to quickly develop our huge markets (heavy dfu 1 bio $). to get out of this situation we need well informed investors, a fair stock valuation and a growth oriented financial plan.
its everybodys guess when financial datas will be published. As a non reporting company, they seem to be in no hurry. they did not care to publish a 1st quarter sales estimate. the starting date july 10 th for our new ceo points to some urgency. 5 weeks should be enough to get up to speed. if they do not publish by aug. 15, they would miss normal q 2 reporting deadline.if an agm would be scheduled for early september (after holidays ) that would leave 30 day announcement time pointing to early august as well. confirming all those directors is much needed. after all those mistakes made by bdo and management confidance has to be restored.
we are having now a much more qualified and independent board. internal controls were neglected before. i was very dissapointed to hear that accounting was part of the sales department. much to long payment terms were not corrected. a dramatic hire and fire cylce took place. this may explain the long audit time. ey have to make sure everything is ok now. lets hope new management can turn now to the tremendes opportunities with our fantastic products.
It looks like Academy Medical recently signed a $1,758,612 contract with the VA for future shipments of Osiris Grafix and Stravix. Contract # VA11916D0043 and Osiris has already shipped 2% of the contract. Interesting in that two of these shipments were for "shoulder implants". Apparently the use of Grafix in surgical procedures is being utilized.
Osiris Grafix is keeping pace with Epifix in Veteran Administration (VA) sales and probably gaining ground on them. Thus far in their fiscal year 2017, Epifix has done 226 transactions for Epifix and Grafix has done 113...exactly 50% of their rate. June sales for Epifix were $82,404 and Grafix was $77,024.
Grafix sales are doing quite well with et
