About us

AddBIO was founded in 2008 and has developed a solution to solve the real problem in the implant industry-weak bone. By coating any implant on the market with a bioactive nanolayer with a bone –strengthening drug, we know that millions of patients will experience better results and faster recovery.

We call our product Zolidd®.

Zolidd® has been evaluated in both pre-clinical and clinical studies, in both instances with excellent results.

The landmark clinical results in the dental indication have generated serious interest from major companies. Clinical results showing significant benefits in orthopaedic indications will be of equal importance in discussions with leading orthopaedic implant partners who can benefit from differentiation and clinical development.
