The 1M1M Deal Radar 2010: Arthrosurface ,Franklin, Massachusetts

Posted on Tuesday, May 18th 2010

Oseteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease or degenerative arthritis, is not a new disease – evidence of it has been found in skeletons from the Ice Age. But effective methods of stopping the disease, especially ones appropriate for young and middle-aged adults, have been elusive.

World statistics are not easily calculated, but British researchers estimate that 9.6% of men and 18% of women over 60 have osteoarthritis. For older osteoarthritis patients, often the only option to restore range of motion is total joint replacement. For patients too young for joint replacement, Arthrosurface offers a less invasive implant system that it says is effective in slowing the disease’s progress. >>>

Deal Radar 2010: InHouse Inc ,Santa Ana, California

Posted on Tuesday, Apr 20th 2010

Among the allegations of misdeeds and unfair practices in the mortgage industry during and after the housing market implosion was New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo’s 2007 lawsuit of appraisal firm First American eAppraiseIT for collusion with Washington Mutual (WaMu). Cuomo claimed that First American eAppraiseIT allowed WaMu to pressure it to use appraisers who inflated home prices by giving artificially high appraisals. In 2009, to bring more transparency to the appraisal process, Fannie Mae reached an agreement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and the New York Attorney General’s office to adopt the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) regulating relationships between lenders and appraisers. Another measure, the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Mortgagee Letter 09-28 Appraiser Independence (ML 09-28), stresses the importance of lenders, mortgage brokers, and real estate agents remaining independent of the appraisal process. >>>
