with GEM 21S®
4Cs of Innovation
1C | Consistency
The only off-the-shelf source of purified rhPDGF approved for bone and soft tissue regeneration.2
2C | Cellular Attraction
rhPDGF signals and recruits the specific cells that the body needs to regenerate bone and the surrounding tissues (chemotaxis).3
3C | Cellular Proliferation
Once the cells migrate to the site, cell proliferation occurs (mitogenesis). This cellular activity stimulates angiogenesis, resulting in more rapid healing and new bone formation.3
4C | Clinical Outcomes
GEM 21S® is one of the most researched growth factors in dentistry. rhPDGF has been demonstrated to be safe and effective in regenerating bone and soft tissue in more than 500 scientific publications and 60+ clinical studies.4
It starts with innovation
you can count on.
GEM 21S® Growth-factor Enhanced Matrix is designed to enhance the patient’s natural ability to heal and restore bone and gingiva lost due to periodontal disease. GEM 21S® is a synthetic bone graft that has been engineered to take advantage of tissue engineering principles combining purified, potent, sterile recombinant platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF) with an osteoconductive matrix (beta tricalcium phosphate, β-TCP).
Extensive in vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated that rhPDGF-BB is a powerful stimulant of angiogenesis that also stabilizes newly formed blood vessels.

GEM 21S® brings biologics into focus for patients.
- Your patients will appreciate GEM 21S® as it promotes faster, better healing and a more predictable outcome of your oral regenerative procedures.1
- At the conclusion of a pivotal trial, patients who were in need of additional surgery unanimously stated that they would prefer treatment with GEM 21S® over a CTG because they were satisfied with the esthetic results and could avoid the harvesting of palatal graft.4
“In dealing with periodonal defects, one of my favorite biomaterials to use is GEM 21S® which is a highly purified recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF-BB).”Dr. John Kim, DMD, MS, PA
