Dr. Edward Ahn, Vice President of Biomaterials at Pioneer states, The osteoconductive matrix in FortrOss utilizes Pioneer’s nanOss™ technology and is designed to mimic the nanostructures inherent in boney tissue. Because the nanOss hydroxyapatite in FortrOss resembles the size, shape, and chemistry of native bone, boney tissue has a great affinity for nanOss and recognizes it as native tissue. This mimicry of native bone makes nanOss superior to other calcium phosphates on the market.
According to Dr. Ron Hill, Vice President of Research and Development at Pioneer, The FortrOss carrier is a collagen based bioscaffold processed to provide an osteopromotive effect. Pioneer’s patented E-Matrix technology provides the unique open structure for bone growth and repair.
The combined nanotechnology-based osteoconduction and osteopromotive E-Matrix scaffold of FortrOss positions Pioneer to impact significantly the dynamic field of bone and tissue repair. FortrOss is expected to be U.S. market released later this year.
