Date:7/29/2013

Alachua, FL (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

AxoGen, Inc. (OTCQB: AXGN), a leading regenerative medicine company focused on the development and commercialization of products and technologies for peripheral nerve reconstruction and regeneration, today announced that Navy Corpsman Edward Bonfiglio, a patient who received limb sparing surgery utilizing AxoGen’s Avance® Nerve Graft, has been selected by the American Association of Tissue Bank’s (AATB) to represent tissue recipients on the “Donate Life” float in the 2014 Rose Parade.

During a routine foot patrol in Afghanistan, Mr. Bonfiglio’s unit was ambushed and he was shot in his left leg. Due to injury to his sciatic nerve, he lost all function and feeling below his knee. Upon returning to the U.S., surgeons at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C. presented Bonfiglio with surgical repair options that included amputation of his left leg or, as he and his family elected, repair of the severed peripheral nerve with Avance® Nerve Graft, a processed nerve allograft, with the goal of restoring function. Lt. Commander Patrick Basile, Director of Microsurgery at Walter Reed, performed the surgery that saved Bonfiglio’s leg. Today, using his own leg, Bonfiglio can walk and jog, and is currently training for the Paralympics.

Karen Zaderej, Chief Executive Officer of AxoGen, commented, “Edward is an exceptional human being who served our country bravely and we are privileged to have provided a nerve repair solution that contributed to saving his leg. He provides great inspiration and hope to patients, in particular those with nerve injuries who can benefit from our processed nerve allograft. We support his efforts to expand awareness of treatment options and
