Additional Product Benefits

Does Not Interfere With Bone Healing*

Preclinical studies on sternal, cranial and tibial animal bone healing show OSTENE facilitates normal osteogenesis while negligible healing is shown with bone wax.2,3,4,6,7

*Preclinical data. Results may not correlate to performance in humans.

Does Not Increase Infection*


OSTENE does not increase infection rates, providing for a good alternative to bone wax when the risk of infection may be a concern.2,4,5,6

Does Not Cause Chronic Inflammation*

In a preclinical model, OSTENE does not cause chronic inflammation, providing for a good alternative to bone wax when the risk of chronic inflammation may be a concern.2,4
