GEM Vet is recombinant human Platelet Derived Growth Factor (rhPDGF-BB)-Enhanced Bone Graft that harnesses the power of PDGF and allograft.
Each kit contains 0.5cc Osetoallograft Ultra-Fine and 0.5cc rhPDGF-BB
Suitable for any dental or orthopedic application where bone graft is used!
Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
- rhPDGF-BB recruits cells from surrounding tissue (chemotaxis)
- rhPDGF-BB causes recruited cells to multiply (mitogenesis)
- rhPDGF-BB elicits the creation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis)
Osteoallograft is the ideal carrier for PDGF
- Allograft provides the scaffold & biologic signals for new bone
- Allograft promotes in-growth of cells (osteoconductive and osteoinductive)
- Allograft is natural bone (not a substitute)
- Allograft is remodeled to become the patient’s own bone
