The review article co-authored by three US-based doctors in The Spine Journal says that in 13 trials involving 780 patients, "industry-funded researchers did not report a single adverse advent involving Medtronic's Infuse Bone Graft issued a public health notice about "life-threatening complications" associated with the product, also known as recombinant human Bone Morphogenetic Protein (rhBMP), when used in the upper or cervical spine.
The authors exposed mouse mesenchymal cells to lead in vitro and observed signaling changes in several proteins active in chondrogenesis: transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-[beta]), bone morphogenetic protein (BMP), activating protein 1 (AP-1), and nuclear factor kappa B (NF[kappa]B).
