Brief summary
The objective of this clinical study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of NB1 Bone
Graft in subjects with degenerative disc disease undergoing transforaminal lumbar interbody

It is estimated that up to 30 participants will be enrolled in approximately 3 clinical
sites. During baseline and follow-up assessments, patients will be asked to undergo x-rays
and CT scans; adverse events and immunology will be collected, and; participants will be
requested to complete participant questionnaires regarding quality of life, pain and
