“More than 20 million Americans are afflicted with knee osteoarthritis and there is no cure, but the associated pain can be managed,” said Tony Bihl, CEO of Bioventus. “DUROLANE has been a proven knee OA pain reliever for more than 15 years, improving the lives of more than one million people worldwide. It will join our current offerings to provide even more efficacious treatment options for US patients, physicians and payers.”
DUROLANE will complement the company’s OA portfolio which includes three-injection HA GELSYN-3 and the five-injection HA SUPARTZ FX. Bioventus markets and sells DUROLANE in more than 25 countries including Canada, Mexico, Australia, and throughout much of Europe. It plans to launch DUROLANE the U.S. market in early 2018.
