Four Posters Demonstrate the Clinical Benefits of NEOX ® Wound Allograft Presented at SAWC
MIAMI, FL – May 8, 2018 – AMNIOX Medical, Inc., a TissueTech, Inc. company, highlighted four clinical posters demonstrating the effectiveness of NEOX® Wound Allograft at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) in April.
The presentations illustrate applications of NEOX Wound Allograft in combination with other therapies, and among a range of severe wounds that are resistant to current standard of care or are under served.
“The clinical effectiveness and value of NEOX continues to be reinforced in these studies, as well as opportunities to combine different approaches to advanced wound care,” said Adrian Roji, Chief Commercial Officer of TissueTech. “The authors found that patients who received NEOX experienced closure of hard-to-heal wounds, further highlighting the unique properties of cryo-preserved umbilical cord tissue.”
The studies presented at SAWC included:
- Treatment of Post-Operative Left Temporal Wound with Umbilical Cord Based Particulate and Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, Timothy Plackett, DO
- Use of Hydrated Shelf Stable Umbilical Cord Allograft for the Treatment of Chronic Wounds, Allen Raphael, DPM
- Treatment of Close-Range Gun Shot Wound with Umbilical Cord Based Particulate (pUC) and Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Timothy Plackett, DO
- Treatment of Invasive Carcinoma Wound with Hyperbaric Oxygen and Cryopreserved Umbilical Cord, Luis Fernandez, MD
