IlluminOss Medical wins de novo nod from FDA for bone stabilization system
The FDA last month granted de novo clearance to the photodynamic bone stabilization system developed by IlluminOss Medical. The IlluminOss device uses a light-curable polymer, delivered in an expandable balloon catheter, to stabilize bone fractures. In a Dec. 19 letter to the East Providence, R.I.-based company, the FDA granted de novo clearance for an indication for “skeletally mature patients in the treatment of impending and actual pathological fractures of the humerus, radius and ulna from metastatic bone disease.” The federal safety watchdog said it also concluded that the IlluminOss device is Class I...

Clarifying the interplay between bone cells in bone remodeling
(Osaka University) Bone homeostasis is regulated by communication between bone-forming mature osteoblasts (mOB) and bone-resorptive mature osteoclasts (mOC). However, the interaction between them in vivo remains unclear. A team of Osaka-centered researchers developed an intravital two-photon microscopy technique which reveals mOB and mOC functions are regulated via direct cell-cell contact between these cell types. The findings may pave the way for the development of new therapies for diseases such as osteoporosis and cancer bone metastasis. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

There's a costly problem affecting orthopedic patients and hospital systems, and a European molecular diagnostics company wants to be part of the solution.  Patients who have had a prosthetic joint replacement sometimes find themselves back in the hospital in excruciating pain that could either be caused by an invasive joint infection or a mechanical issue. The surgeon can puncture the joint to collect a fluid sample and have it sent to a lab for a culture test, but that takes up to two weeks to produce a result using the current standard of care technology, Curetis CEO Oliver Schacht told MD+DI.  "...
