Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, Stryker Biotech sign joint agreement to market products used in treatment of bone and joint tissue.

The Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation (MTF), Edison, NJ, and Stryker Biotech, a division of the Stryker Corporation, announced they have signed an exclusive joint development agreement focused on the development and marketing of products combining allograft tissue and OP-1, Stryker's proprietary bone morphogenetic protein, for use in the treatment, repair and replacement of bone and joint tissue. Under terms of the agreement, MTF and Stryker Biotech will immediately begin to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combined products in a variety of indications.

Stryker says it believes OP-1 may work well in the replacement of bone. The companies believe the combined technologies have the potential to increase the utility and efficacy of bone used in transplantation. Contac: Bruce Stroever, MTF - (732) 661-0202; David Simpson, Stryker - (616) 385-2600
