The study, titled “Comparison of a Fully Synthetic Electrospun Matrix to a Bi-Layered Xenograft in Healing Full Thickness Cutaneous Wounds in a Porcine Model,” demonstrates RestrataTM’s ability to accelerate healing and closure of full-thickness wounds and to increase the amount and maturity of granulation tissue and neovascularization compared to a leading biologic skin substitute.
“Acera is excited to highlight the results of our preclinical study of the Restrata Wound Matrix product,” stated Dr. Matthew MacEwan, Chief Science Officer at Acera Surgical, Inc. “Our findings highlight the ability of Restrata to improve the speed and quality of wound healing and reduce inflammation within the wound bed over an existing standard of care, all of which may result in significant clinical benefits for future patients treated with Restrata.”
The study results are also scheduled for a poster presentation at the Fall 2017 Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (“SAWC”), being held in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 20-22. SAWC is one of the nation’s largest and most well-respected interdisciplinary wound care programs.
