REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SMC Biotechnology, a regenerative medicine company focused on developing carbohydrate compounds that enhance tissue regeneration, announced today that data published in the online journal, Biomaterials, suggests that its proprietary sugar compound, SMC-103 greatly enhances bone repair. Researchers found that affinity-selected heparan sulfate (HS) improved bone repair by increasing the bioavailability, bioactivity and half-life of the pro-healing compound, bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2). SMC-103 is a glycosaminoglycan, or GAG, a naturally occurring substance composed of chains of paired sugar units. SMC Biotechnology is currently developing SMC-103 as a bone-healing device that can be delivered to the exact site of injury or damage to augment the body's natural healing process.
