Organogenesis Awarded a 5-Year Federal Supply Schedule Agreement with the Department of Veteran Affairs
Date:8/4/2014

CANTON, Mass., Aug 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Organogenesis Inc. announced today that it has been awarded Federal Supply Schedule Contract V797D-30288 with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for Apligraf®, the only product with FDA approval for the treatment of both diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) and venous leg ulcers (VLUs).  This five-year contract includes an option to extend its duration for an additional five years, for a total contract duration of up to 10 years.   This award will streamline the purchasing process for Veterans Affairs Medical Centers to gain easier access to Apligraf. 

The VA Federal Supply Schedule program is managed by the VA under delegated authority by the General Services Administration (GSA).  The VA manages Schedule programs for medical equipment, supply, pharmaceutical, and service contracts. 

"This is a positive event for veterans and patients within the VA system who suffer from DFUs and VLUs, as they will have improved access to Apligraf, which is now on contract within the VA Medical Centers and Community-Based Outpatient Clinics," said Geoff MacKay, President and CEO of Organogenesis Inc.  "Apligraf has been proven to close these chronic wounds faster than standard care alone, and lower amputation rates have been observed, which is especially important in the VA system.  Research has shown that closing wounds rapidly is critical in preventing complications such as amputations or osteomyelitis."

Diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers are among the most frequently occurring chronic wounds, affecting millions of people in the United States every year, including many U.S. veterans. Research has shown that the majority of patients with VLUs or DFUs fail to heal with conventional therapy alone. These low success rates contribute to both the costs and risks ass
