Stryker Corporation, in Kalamazoo, indicted for fraud in illegal sales and promotion of bone-growth product

Yesterday, a grand jury indicted the Kalamazoo medical product company and its CEO from 2004 through 2008, for fraud.  The defendants are accused of promoting the use of its bone growth "OP-1 putty" [called Calstrux] and OP-1 implant for uses not approved by the FDA.  Use of the mixture caused "serious medical problems" for some patients, according to the federal prosecutor.  The product was originally approved under a "humanitarian device exception" to treat a condition affecting fewer than 4,000 patients.
