BMP-7: Human Trials Now To End Kidney Disease

358 Signatures Goal: 250

We urgently ask Stryker, a global leader in medical technology, to seek a fast tract to human trials on human protein BMP-7 to test its potential to effectively treat kidney disease and even regenerate kidneys in humans. Stryker is the exclusive licensee of the signaling human protein BMP-7 since early 2007. Stryker is currently considering conducting a Phase I safety study for systemic delivery (most likely intravenous injection) of BMP-7. This could potentially serve as a platform to allow Stryker to expand into multiple areas such as kidney and liver fibrosis. Let's encourage Stryker to move forward as fast as possible! Sign the petition today!

BMP-7 has been shown in pre-clinical research to have the potential to cure most kidney disease in humans, with the possibility of relieving the suffering of hundreds of thousands of people now on dialysis and millions of others with pre dialysis kidney disease. The potential use of BMP-7 for curing most human kidney disease was first discovered in the late 1990s and was first licensed by Curis, who then licensed to Ortho-Biotech in 2002. 5 years later, Ortho-Biotech returned the license to Curis after having done no human investigations for this amazing protein. Curis then immediately licensed BMP-7 to Stryker in early 2007. Stryker was a logical choice for Curis to transfer the license since Stryker already has an excellent product, approved by the FDA, that incorporates BMP-7 in a paste for use in healing complicated human bone fractures where other standard methods fail. Therefore, BMP-7 is safe and effective for use in humans in at least one form. Unfortunately, use of BMP-7 for treating and curing kidney disease in humans is still in the clinical stage after all these years. An effective treatment for kidney disease, such as what BMP-7 has the potential to do, would make Stryker Billions and save private insurance and the Medicare program 10s of Billions by drastically reducing the need for kidney transplants and dialysis and returning hundreds of thousands to productive and happier lives. Because of this tremendous savings to the government, the FDA could be motivated even more to fast track the development of BMP-7.

    Please help us!! If need be try to explain to your colleges frim other companies that they can still be profitable if they get out of this business model of treatment over cures..There will always be new dialysi@ patents..Tell them to start thinking from a more humain yet still profitable perspective of instead of killing us slow over a period of 10yrs or more.Set a new stamdard of 2 to 4 years of trillion dollar profits then cure us & let us move on & make room for the next batch if patients from which to profit from..Dial back thee greed a little bit....
