ethoss® shortlisted for prestigious award

Ethoss® Regeneration Ltd has been shortlisted for the Medical / Life Sciences & Healthcare category at the Made in Yorkshire Awards 2017.

The prestigious event celebrates world-class companies based in Yorkshire and the Humber and the products they are making and selling across the world.

Taking place at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, the 5th annual Made in Yorkshire Awards is part of the wider Made in the UK series, with winners from each regional category going on to compete against those from other regions across Britain.

The company has been shortlisted for its success with its primary product ethoss®, an innovative synthetic bone graft solution for dental implants.

The unique composition of ethoss®, which has a built-in membrane, removing the need for a separate collagen membrane, provides a highly stable graft and typically produces 50% new bone after 12 weeks.

ethoss® is a bi-phasic synthetic material made from a mixture of beta tri calcium phosphate and calcium sulfate and is completely free from animal or human content. The built-in membrane function prevents soft tissue ingress and dramatically speeds up healing times, by allowing the healing effect of the periosteum and blood supply direct contact with the site. This means surgical procedures can be completed much more quickly and reliably, benefitting both patient and dentist.

Dr Peter Fairbairn, Clinical Director of Ethoss® Regeneration Ltd, said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for this award and to share the stage with other companies from the region bringing world-class products and innovations to the field of healthcare.

“We have put a premium on creating a product that is both unique and provides a clinically-led and evidence-backed solution for dentists across the world. That has been borne out by the feedback we continue to receive from top international dentists and the sales of ethoss® itself.

“The company has enjoyed exceptional domestic growth since we released ethoss® to market in 2015 – and that is now being replicated overseas with distributors signed up across Europe, Africa, the US, South America, and East Asia.

“To be shortlisted for this award is deserved recognition for the hard work that has gone in to making ethoss® a genuine market leader and we now look forward the event in Leeds.”
