NASS’ Section on Biologics and Basic Research presents this free one-hour pre-NASS 2021 Annual Meeting webinar, The Bone Morphogenetic Protein Pendulum - Reemergence of Use and Alternatives, on Thursday, August 19 from 7-8pm CT. The webinar will also be part of the Annual Meeting Virtual Education Program.
Overview: Usage of bone morphogenetic protein has seen large fluctuations given the controversy regarding its safety profile. As reemergence of use continues to grow, it is important to evaluate the efficacy and safety of these applications. Additionally, small molecule and peptide alternatives to BMP2 are emerging, and critical analysis of their efficacy and safety is essential.
Participants in the webinar will gain strategies to explore ongoing trends in use of BMP and additional clinical data regarding safety, efficacy and value; discuss controversial applications of BMP and the current data in regard to safety and complications; examine new peptides and small molecule biologics for spinal fusion; and explore future directions of biologic delivery.
