Bone Biologics Corp. (OTCQB:BBLG), a developer of orthobiologic products for domestic and international spine fusion markets, today has announced that it received Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) approval on March 20, 2019, for the first center of a multicenter pilot clinical trial to evaluate NB1 (NELL-1/DBX®) in 30 patients in Australia. The pilot study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of NB1 in adult subjects with degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one level from L2-S1, who may also have up to Grade 1 spondylolisthesis or Grade 1 retrolisthesis at the involved level who undergo transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF).

The differentiation factor NEL-like molecule-1 (NELL-1) has been reported as osteoinductive in multiple in vivo preclinical models. Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 is used clinically
for skeletal repair, but in vivo administration can induce abnormal, adipose-filled, poor quality bone. We demonstrate that NELL-1 combined with BMP2 significantly optimizes
osteogenesis in a rodent femoral segmental defect model by minimizing the formation of BMP2-induced adipose-filled cyst like bone. In vitro studies using the mouse bone marrow
stromal cell line M2-10B4 and human primary bone marrow stromal cells have confirmed that NELL-1 enhances BMP2-induced osteogenesis and inhibits BMP2-induced adipogenesis.
Importantly, the ability of NELL-1 to direct BMP2-treated cells toward osteogenesis and away from adipogenesis requires intact canonical Wnt signaling. Overall, these studies establish
the feasibility of combining NELL-1 with BMP2 to improve clinical bone regeneration and provide mechanistic insight into canonical Wnt pathway activity during NELL-1 and BMP2
osteogenesis. The novel abilities of NELL-1 to stimulate Wnt signaling and to repress adipogenesis may highlight new treatment approaches for bone loss in osteoporosis.

A combination of hPSCs, a population of native mesenchymal stem cells prospectively isolated from adipose tissues, and NELL‐1, an osteoinductive protein, was used. Results showed successful spinal fusion in osteoporotic rats with minimal side effects such as osteoinductive protein therapeutic for spinal fusion procedures in osteoporotic conditions such as inflammation and fat tissue formation. This combinational therapy using hPSCs combined with NELL‐1 has the potential to be a novel stem cell

Among osteosarcoma subtypes, fibroblastic osteosarcoma demonstrated the highest expression of NELL-1. NELL-1 demonstrates diffuse and reliable expression in benign but not malignant bone-forming skeletal tumors.
