"We are excited to have secured the funds necessary to help us complete this licensing agreement with Lonza and to prepare to advance this important technology to commercialization. We believe Regenicin is now poised to address a significant unmet medical need as PermaDerm™ is the only tissue-engineered skin prepared from a patient's own skin cells," Randall McCoy, Chief Executive Officer of Regenicin said. "The technology combines cultured epithelium with a collagen-fibroblast implant that produces a skin substitute that contains both epidermal and dermal components. This model has been shown in preclinical studies to generate a functional skin barrier, which is an important step towards realizing the potential of regenerative medicine."
