|MiMedx Announces Nationwide Launch of AmnioFill™|
Physicians are in need of a product to treat larger acute and chronic wounds encountered in the surgical setting. Slated for nationwide release later this month, AmnioFill is being offered in multiple sizes and configurations to address this and other surgical needs.
AmnioFill is a collagenous matrix derived from the placenta and comprised of placental extracellular matrix (ECM) tissue. AmnioFill is a tissue allograft containing ECM proteins, growth factors, cytokines and other specialty proteins present in placental tissue. Over 226 growth factors, cytokines and chemokines, including important modulators of inflammation and factors critically important in wound healing, are contained in the AmnioFill placental tissue.
Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO, said, "AmnioFill will be a great addition to our product lines, addressing the needs of both Wound Care and Surgical markets. For example, we expect that AmnioFill will be an ideal solution for physicians in the treatment of dehisced surgical wounds and other deep complex and hard-to-heal surgical wounds that require a connective tissue matrix to replace or supplement damaged or inadequate integumental tissue."
Cashman added, "AmnioFill is designed to provide a scaffold for recruited cells to attach, populate and proliferate. The placental tissues in the scaffold should modulate the activity of the recruited cells to generate new tissue for these larger acute and chronic surgical wounds. When used earlier in the treatment of these complex wounds, we believe AmnioFill becomes an even more cost effective approach as a step therapy for wound closure."
