Regenicin, Inc. (OTCBB:WDST) has officially announced that they will be presenting at a key event "to celebrate the newest advancements in regenerative medicine" alongide representatives of the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine, the U.S. Department of Defense Office of Technology Transition; as well as members of Congress, U.S. Armed Forces personnel, scientists, firefighters, and surgeons on the frontlines of treating burns and wounds in the U.S.
As exclusively reported previously in this space, the company is expected to present key information and announce important developments regarding the regenerative cell therapy they recently licensed from Swiss based life science company, Lonza AG.
According to a press release issued by the company on Tuesday morning, Regenicin will present their role in the commercialization of the therapeutic candidate, PermaDerm™, a product which could help revolutionize the way wounded warriors and civilians recover from severe burns and wounds. Speaking on behalf of Regenicin will be Dr. Craig Eagle, a member of Regenicin's Board of Directors, and head of Oncology for Pfizer Worldwide.
PermaDerm™ is the only tissue-engineered skin prepared from autologous (patient's own) skin cells from both the epidermal and dermal skin layers. A small sample of the patient's skin can be expanded in the laboratory to cover a wound site that extends over 50% of the patient's body. These self-to-self skin grafts are intended to form permanent wound closure that is not rejected by the patient's immune system, a critical possibility in porcine or cadaver skin grafts used today.
