A Study of INFUSE Bone Graft (Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2/Absorbable Collagen Sponge) in the Treatment of Tibial Pseudarthrosis in Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1)

Official Title: A Study of INFUSE Bone Graft (Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2/Absorbable Collagen Sponge) in the Treatment of Tibial Pseudarthrosis in Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1)

The current study proposes adding BMP-2 (INFUSE), an anabolic agent, at the surgical site of TPA repair in children with NF1, compared to a control group of patients treated surgically without BMP-2. The following Specific Aims will be addressed: 1) to determine if use of an osteogenic agent (BMP-2) at the time of surgical repair of TPA in NF1 patients will result in improved bone healing; 2) to document safety of BMP-2 in a pediatric NF1 population; and 3) to collect, process, and preserve biologic specimens at the time of surgery for future studies.
