INFUSE Review Leads To Discussion And Some Discord At NASS

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014 | Permalink

Medtronic’s subdued showing at NASS in October revealed the sometimes rocky relationship among industry, clinicians, and academia: The Yale University Open Data Access Project suggested rhBMP-2 didn’t fuse bone any better than standard-iliac crest bone graft, yet Medtronic executives found some vindication in the process, saying it supported on-label use of BMP, and suggested the Yale University-led process could be a model to settle future controversies in the medical industry.

Subsitute for BPA in epoxy looks ‘promising’

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013 | Permalink

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Lowell say they have identified and tested a potential chemical substitute for bisphenol A (BPA) in epoxy. Use of epoxy in food contact applications, such as can linings, have been under pressure because of concerns about potential health effects of the BPA used to make it. With financial support from the Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Institute, the researchers studied a possible alternate–the bis(epoxide) of 2,2,4,4-tetramethyl-1,3-cyclobutanediol.
