Lund, Sweden, (PRNEWSWIRE) March 1, 2016 – BONESUPPORT™, an emerging leader in injectable bone substitutes for orthopedic trauma, bone infections and instrument augmentation related to orthopedic surgery, today announced an extension to the CERAMENT™|G product portfolio, adding a 5 mL volume to further develop the management of osteomyelitis (OM) and infection prophylaxis in diabetic foot and small extremities. CERAMENT™|G, which releases Gentamicin, received CE-mark in 2013, and is the first injectable antibiotic eluting bone substitute indicated to promote and protect bone healing in the management of bone infection. CERAMENT™|G is now available in 5 mL and 10 mL in CE-mark countries.

The new smaller 5 mL volume further expands the application of CERAMENT™|G in small joint and extremity indications, including osteomyelitis in the Diabetic Foot.  The efficacy of CERAMENT™|G in the management of this indication was recently demonstrated in two studies presented at the 34th Annual Meeting of the European Bone and Infection Society.
