NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioStructures, LLC, a privately held orthobiologics company, today announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration has granted 510(k) clearance for Bioactive Bone Graft Putty (Signafuse™).  Signafuse™ is indicated for the posterolateral spine, extremities and pelvis as well as a bone graft extender in the posterolateral spine.

Signafuse™ represents a new class of synthetic biomaterials designed for optimization of cell growth and bone formation.  Signafuse™ is comprised of a biphasic mineral and bioactive glass suspended in a resorbable polymer carrier. The patented polymer carrier gives Signafuse exceptional handling characteristics which allow the graft to be easily molded and shaped for the unique size of the bony defect.
