Organogenesis Debuts Educational Campaign for Sufferers of Chronic Leg and Foot Ulcers
Date:2/11/2008

said Stephen Farrell, vice president of marketing for Organogenesis, Inc. "These non-healing wounds cause patients to become disheartened due to the discomfort, maintenance problems, stigma and limitations on mobility that often result, not to mention their worries about the possibility of amputation."

"Over the years I had seen many different doctors and none of the treatments healed the wound," said Verneice Burton, an 80-year-old patient of Dr. Snyder who suffered from a chronic venous leg ulcer for 44 years. "Because of the wound, it was difficult for me to do things that I loved, like go to family events or to church. For all of those years, I did not know that there was something available to help people like me." Mrs. Burton was treated in August 2007 with Apligraf, which successfully healed her chronic wound.

"My life has changed in so many ways in the past few months," continued Mrs. Burton. "I took my first plane trip in 20 years, the wound is healed and it is much easier for me to leave the house."

Like human skin, Apligraf contains two layers of living cells: an outer (or epidermal) layer of protective skin cells, and an inner (or dermal) layer of cells that produce more than 40 substances such as cytokines and growth factors that are important for healing. When placed on a wound previously unresponsive to treatment, Apligraf integrates into the wound, thus helping it heal. Apligraf has been used in over 200,000 patients with an excellent safety profile, and is covered extensively by Medicare, Medicaid and by 350 private payers.

About Regenerative Medicine

A new frontier in healthcare, regenerative medicine is an evolving therapeutic approach that utilizes living cells to repair or replace body tissue damaged by injury, disease or the aging process. It is a multidisciplinary field involving biology, medicine and engineering.

Regenerative therapies rely on the body's own natural ability to repair and regenerate,
