ACell, a new tissue engineering company, recently introduced a new veterinaryproduct that naturally promotes the restoration of tissue in wounds andsurgical applications. This biomedical breakthrough is based on extensiveresearch and development and offers a viable solution to many of the clinicalchallenges faced by veterinary practice encounters, the company says. Itfeatures a naturally occurring, extra cellular matrix (ECM) scaffold thatpromotes the repair and replacement of tissues. Acting as an inductive template,the ECM scaffold repairs damaged tissues by promoting the body's constructiveremodeling capabilities to restore tissues to normal health, the companysays. According to ACell President Stephen Badylak, DVM, Ph.D., MD, "Ourdebut product is effective in both the wound care and surgical arenas andprovides veterinarians with a valuable new treatment option that can improvepatient care. We have seen excellent results in cases that range from smallanimals to equine patients." Badylak, a faculty member at Purdue University,adds. "This product changes the fundamental wound healing response.The matrix provides for neovascularization and constructive remodeling ofdamaged tissues." Examples of applications that have shown the greatestpotential include partial and full thickness wounds and corneal ulcer repair.The ACell ECM matrix scaffold is totally resorbable, easy to handle, andhas excellent strength. It is available in lyophilized and hydrated form.Case studies and additional literature are available upon request.
