1/3/2013 9:44:37 AM

FRANKLIN, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BioMimetic Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: BMTI) today announced it initiated enrollment in a Phase II clinical trial to assess the safety and efficacy of Augmentâ„¢ Chronic Tendinopathy (ACT) as a treatment for lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow. The randomized, controlled trial is expected to enroll up to 100 patients at seven clinical sites in the U.S. and will evaluate the safety and therapeutic potential of escalating doses of a one-time injection of pure recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF-BB) homodimer solution into the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB), the tendon in the elbow that is generally the source of pain in tennis elbow. The product candidate is aimed at the large tendinosis market for which there is significant unmet clinical need with limited effective long-term treatments currently available.
