    Kuros Biosurgery AG announced today the one year follow-up results of a Phase IIb clinical trial assessing the potential of KUR-111 (Viz.I- 0401) in the treatment of patients with tibial plateau fractures that require fixation and grafting. As reported previously, the study achieved its primary efficacy endpoint, which was the demonstration of statistical non-inferiority to autograft with respect to the proportion of patients who achieved radiological fracture union at 16 weeks after grafting. During the one year follow-up, there was continuing improvement with radiological fracture union in 96.2% of patients treated with low dose KUR-111, 100% of those treated with high dose KUR-111 and 98.2% of those treated with autograft. No safety concerns were raised.
