Company Launches First-Ever Direct-To-Consumer Campaign of a Living
CANTON, Mass., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Organogenesis, Inc., the first company to successfully mass-produce living regenerative medicine products, is again breaking new ground by launching the first-ever direct-to-consumer (DTC) educational campaign for a living cell-based therapy. As the first bio-engineered living cell therapy to have received FDA approval, Apligraf(R) has been used successfully by doctors in treating hundreds of thousands of patients with diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) and venous leg ulcers (VLUs) in the U.S. and around the world.

The campaign will highlight the medical advances that have resulted in bio-active wound products like Apligraf, which is designed to "kick start" the body's natural healing process in these hard-to-heal wounds.
Organogenesis' comprehensive direct-to-consumer campaign also includes the launch of a new consumer educational web site, http://www.Apligraf.com, internet marketing, educational materials for patients and point-of-purchase features. The print ad can be viewed online at http://www.apligraf.com/offsite/pdf/apligraf_ad.pdf.
