SiN is one of the first materials to challenge the monopoly that PEEK has not only in the market but within the industry. Holding companies hostage to a three year $225,000 to $250,000 licensing agreement, the time has come for someone to challenge Invibio's stranglehold on the market. In addition to challenging PEEK, Amedica will be provided with an opportunity to substantiate their claims and validate that their unique BioActive surface promotes bony ingrowth in and through the implant. The last company to have any material similar to this was Zimmer with its acquisition of trabecular metal in terms of their argument.
Kudos must go out to Amedica. Regardless, whether you like their portfolio or not, they are one of the few companies within our industry willing to put their money where their mouth is. TSB has heard many varying opinions to SiN, TSB wants to know what our readers think. Will this be a worthwhile investment, or could this come back and bite them in the derriere? TSB wants to know what are readers think?
