BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes Plc: Animal test results completed contributing on their part to submitting the CE marking application


Company Release, Inside Information, September 7th 2021, at 5:45 p.m.

The management of BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes  Plc has today September 7, 2021 approved the final report on the results of the animal test (sheep).

The results of the experiment confirm the functionality of Artebone ® Paste, which contains reindeer bone protein extract, and make it possible for the company to respond positively to the demands made by the authorities. According to the final report, Artebone®  Paste causes bone to heal faster than the alternatives (ceramic and extract alone).

CEO Ilkka Kangasniemi:
"The results of the animal testing were in line with our expectations and are clinically significant. Positive results are an important step forward for our company and significantly reduce the risks associated with obtaining the CE marking. We will provide further information regarding the application schedule by the end of September.

The animal test was carried out at the request of the authorities to provide supplementary documentation for the CE marking application. The experiment was aimed at demonstrating that Artebone®  Paste can be classified as a medical device and has an acceptable efficacy.

The company has described the application process for the CE marking and as well as the related delays in its half-year financial report published on 25 August 2021.
