Trouble may be brewing for Osiris after MiMedx FDA letter: Feuerstein

  • MiMedx's (MDXG) recent issues with the FDA "might portend trouble" for Osiris Therapeutics (OSIR), theStreet's Adam Feuerstein writes, in response to a reader's e-mail inquiry.
  • MDXG "believed it could sell AmnioFix and EpiFix as HCT/P products" but the FDA apparently considers them to be "biologic products" which means they "must undergo review for efficacy and safety just like other drugs," Feuerstein says.
  • The problem for OSIR: "Grafix and Ovation are HCT/P products [and] MDXG is  raising a stink about competitors, insisting FDA take a closer look at their products which may also violate the HCT/P manufacturing guidelines."
  • A little less than a month ago, OSIR shares took off after Grafix performed well in a study of patients with diabetic foot ulcers.
