Minimally-invasive back pain therapy specialist Spinal Restoration has entered into an exclusive long-term agreement with Baxter Healthcare to develop and further expand the applications of the former's Biostat Biologx fibrin sealant. The deal will see Biostat Biologx combined with Baxter's own fibrin sealant to create the Biostat disc augmentation system, a minimally-invasive product for the treatment of painful degeneration of intervertebral discs. Spinal Restoration (Austin, Texas) said that the partnership will enable it to further its preparation for an investigational device exemption clinical study, scheduled for the first quarter of 2008.
