Biologics: The Growth Engine in Advanced Wound Care

With estimated revenues in excess of $5 billion per year worldwide, the advanced wound care market has garnered the attention of both major companies and investors for its tremendous potential. Growth in this market is being driven by the development of new bioactive products that can successfully heal chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, which are among the most challenging and costly to treat.

Mesynthes Ltd.

Mesynthes Ltd.'s soft tissue regeneration and reconstruction platform, based on a proprietary extracellular matrix derived from the sheep forestomach, provides a biological template for tissue repair. Animal studies have demonstrated that the architecture of the matrix--including the vascular channels and the structural, fibrillar, and adhesive proteins, such as collagen and elastin--supports the ingress and growth of keratinocytes, fibroblasts, and mesenchymal and inflammatory cells. The extracellular matrix also releases important biological macromolecules that trigger tissue regeneration.
