Current understanding of lumbar spine fusion shows no difference in the fusion rate between ICBG
, local autograft, or allograft.
Similarly, when ICBG
was used alone, a fusion rate of 96% (90-100%) was calculated across 3 studies and 101 patients.
Currently, meta-analyses and systematic reviews have failed to demonstrate rhBMP-2 to be superior to ICBG
in achieving clinical success.
[sup] did a prospective cohort study, comparing the fusion performances between allograft and ICBG
with 20 patients included in each group.
And finally, discovery programs provided another vehicle for promoting the importance of biodiversity and supporting its protection, an explicit goal of the ICBG

Companies need to evaluate their capabilities to tackle risk in terms of social, cultural and psychological factors, added Professor Edward Borodzicz, director of the International Center for Business Resilience (ICBG

These include public examples of good practice, such as the ICBGs
already mentioned, and nongovernmental organizations that publicize cases of suspected "biopiracy." Of course, these existing systems are not perfect; for example, pressure from foreign NGOs led to the downfall of the Maya ICBG
project in Mexico, which many commentators regard as having been ethically benign.
