MiMedx Group has announced its plans for the nationwide launch of AmnioFill, the first product in the MiMedx placental collagen matrix product family to be commercially launched.
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.
MiMedx employs terminal sterilization in addition to aseptic processing techniques in its proprietary processing methodology to enhance the safety of AmnioFill and its other amniotic and placental products.
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."
Christopher M. Cashman, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercialization Officer, commented, "The historical costs to treat these types of wounds are significant, and the quality of life issues of non-resolved wounds of this nature can be devastating.”
MiMedx is an integrated developer, processor and marketer of patent protected and proprietary regenerative biomaterial products and bioimplants processed from human amniotic membrane and other birth tissues and human skin and bone.
