Nobel Biocare Holding AG Bone Loss Allegations Are Not Supported
GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Jan. 5, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Nobel Biocare (Other OTC:NBCHF) formally requested papers and other data as public and official documents, according to the Swedish law principle of public access to official records. The request was made since the two professors, Tomas Albrektsson and Lars Sennerby, since May 2005 had issued serious allegations concerning Nobel Biocare's dental implant NobelDirect. But documents and data in the meantime received from Goteborg University only cover 27 patients instead of the much larger number initially referred to. The information is anecdotic; there are no indications of this material being part of a systematic review and by no means as complete as requested. They contain no scientifically or statistically relevant evidence supporting the allegations.
