Human Extracellular Matrix Significantly Improves Device Biocompatibility
Date:5/28/2010

Histogen, Inc., a regenerative medicine company developing solutions based on the products of newborn cells grown under embryonic conditions, will present findings today at the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs (ASAIO) Annual Conference. Assessment of bioengineered, human extracellular matrix (hECM)-coated polymers showed a statistically significant reduction in immune cell infiltration, foreign body giant cell formation (pÂ0.05) and fibrous capsule formation (pÂ0.001), in addition to improved cell binding and proliferation, representing the potential for this hECM to significantly enhance the biocompatibility of various medical devices.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2010 -- Histogen, Inc., a regenerative medicine company developing solutions based on the products of newborn cells grown under embryonic conditions, will present findings today at the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs (ASAIO) Annual Conference. Assessment of bioengineered, human extracellular matrix (hECM)-coated polymers showed a statistically significant reduction in immune cell infiltration, foreign body giant cell formation (p<0.05) and fibrous capsule formation (p<0.001), in addition to improved cell binding and proliferation, representing the potential for this hECM to significantly enhance the biocompatibility of various medical devices.

A large number of biomechanically suitable polymers, such as those devices utilized for cardiovascular, urological and hernia repair, fail due to the inflammatory and thrombogenic response by the body. Pre-clinical research on the insoluble, embryonic-like hECM produced through Histogen's unique manufacturing process has shown the capability of the material to significantly reduce these negative responses, and improve the performance of medical devices.
