TheraVet: Positive Results of BIOCERA-VET®-Bone Surgery Presented at the Annual Conference of the US Veterinary Orthopedic Society and Confirmed on a Larger Patients Cohort

  • Positive BIOCERA-VET® arthrodesis data will be presented in collaboration with Dr. Guillaume Ragetly (ECVS, ACVS, PhD; France) at the US Veterinary Orthopedic Society
  • The annual conference of US Veterinary Orthopedic Society, largest gathering of US orthopedic vet surgeons – is held conjointly this year with World Veterinary Orthopaedic Congress
  • BIOCERA-VET®-Bone Surgery confirmed as a valuable alternative to bone autograft on a larger patients cohort

GOSSELIES, Belgium--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:

TheraVet (Paris:ALVET) (Brussels:ALVET) (ISIN: BE0974387194 - ticker: ALVET), a pioneering company in the management of osteoarticular diseases in pets, announces today the presentation in collaboration with Dr. Guillaume Ragetly (CHV Frégis, Paris, France) of BIOCERA-VET® clinical data in bone fusion surgical procedure1 at 6th World Veterinary Orthopaedic Congress (WVOC) and 49th Annual Conference of the Veterinary Orthopedic Society (VOS) 2022. Both conferences will be held conjointly from February 5th to February 12th, 2022 in Colorado, USA.

BIOCERA-VET® clinical data2 that will be presented on February 9th , 2022 at the WVOC/VOS congress provide evidence of the equivalence of BIOCERA-VET®-Bone Surgery with the autologous bone graft, the standard procedure in joint bone fusion. Indeed, an independent and blinded radiological evaluation assessing bone fusion in 13 canine cases of arthrodesis treated with BIOCERA-VET® and in 16 cases treated with autologous bone graft3 showed that bone fusion induced by BIOCERA-VET® at 4 and 8 weeks following surgery was as good as that induced by bone autograft, but with less complications (25% vs. 0%) and reduced surgical time by 30 to 45 min.

To confirm these clinical data, a larger cohort (doubling the number) of BIOCERA-VET® treated-dogs4 have been assessed radiologically. This additional analysis demonstrated comparable bone fusion score of BIOCERA-VET®-Bone surgery at 4 and 8 weeks with autologous bone graft (at 4 weeks, p>0.05 and at 8 weeks, p>0.05). Similar results were observed on carpal and tarsal bone fusions when analyzed separately. Excellent safety profile has also been confirmed.

These results therefore confirm the positioning of BIOCERA-VET®-Bone Surgery as a valuable alternative to autologous bone graft in joint bone fusion.
