      About

      Bone Biologics is a publicly traded company based in Burlington, MA and is focused on developing and marketing orthobiologic products. Our proprietary platform technology is NELL-1, a recombinant human protein growth factor that is essential for normal bone development. Our lead product is a NELL-1 based bone graft substitute for spine fusion, targeting the rapidly growing orthobiologics market. Our goal is to offer patients superior safety with uncompromising efficacy relative to existing technologies. NELL-1  provides specific targeted regulation over bone regeneration in the presence of targeted osteogenic cells, as both demonstrated in the lab and through the use of animal testing, unlike any other current therapy. It has been shown not to form bone when applied to non-osteogenic cells such as myoblasts (a type of embryonic progenitor cell that differentiates to give rise to muscle cells) nor does it induce adipogenesis (the formation of fat that can occur within the bone matrix often exhibited as cysts) that results in weaker bone.

      MISSION
      Our mission is to utilize the power of NELL-1 to improve clinical outcomes and reduce total health care delivery costs associated with spinal fusion. Bone Biologics is focused on bone repair and regeneration applications and is committed to exploring additional applications of the NELL-1 technology to enhance bone regeneration and repair in areas where the current options provide suboptimal patient outcomes.

          NELL-1 Expression in Benign and Malignant Bone Tumors

          Shen J, LaChaud G, Khadarian K, Shretha S, Zhang X, Soo C, Ting K, James A. BioChem BioPhy Res Comm. (2015) 460: 368-374.

          Among osteosarcoma subtypes, fibroblastic osteosarcoma demonstrated the highest expression of NELL-1.   NELL-1 demonstrates diffuse and reliable expression in benign but not malignant bone-forming skeletal tumors.

          NELL-1 in the treatment of osteoporotic bone loss.

          NELL-1 in the treatment of osteoporotic bone loss.

          James A, Shen J, Zhang X, Asatrian G, Goyal R, Kwak J, Jiang L, Bengs B, uliat C, Turner S, Seim H, Wu B, Lyons K, Adams J, ting K, Soo C.  Nature Communications. (2015)

          Nell-1-haploinsufficient mice have normal skeletal development but undergo age-related osteoporosis, characterized by a reduction in osteoblast:osteoclast (OB:OC) ratio and increased bone fragility. Recombinant NELL-1 binds to integrin b1 and consequently induces Wnt/b-catenin signalling, with increased OB differentiation and inhibition of OC-directed bone resorption. Systemic delivery of NELL-1 to mice with gonadectomy-induced osteoporosis results in improved bone mineral density. When extended to a large animal model, local delivery of NELL-1 to osteoporotic sheep spine leads to significant increase in bone formation. Altogether, these findings suggest that NELL-1 deficiency plays a role in osteoporosis and demonstrate the potential utility of NELL-1 as a combination anabolic/antiosteoclastic therapeutic for bone loss.

          Proliferation and Osteogenic Differentiation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells Induced by a Short Isoform of NELL-1

          Full-length NELL-1 contains 810 aa residues (NELL-1810) plays an important role in embryologic skeletal development, the N-terminal-truncated NELL-1 isoform (NELL-1570) was expressed postnatally. Similar to NELL-1810, NELL-1570 induced MSC osteogenic differentiation. In vivo, NELL-1570 induced significant calvarial defect regeneration accompanied by increased cell proliferation. Thus, NELL-1570 has the potential to be used for cell-based or hormone-based therapy of bone regeneration.
