Apligraf Reimbursement to Benefit from New CMS Codes
Date:11/10/2010

d fairly for each application of Apligraf as directed by our FDA labeling, based on our pivotal clinical trials," stated Geoff MacKay, CEO of Organogenesis. "The new codes, together with a 0-day global billing period, will eliminate unequal financial incentives in the selection of products for the treatment of chronic wounds as well as help ensure that physicians make their treatment decisions based solely on clinical benefit."

Apligraf is the first bio-engineered living cell-based product to have received FDA approval for treatment of diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers. Clinical studies of Apligraf application were based on up to 5 treatments, comprising weekly assessments and/or applications, over a 12-week period. Over 350,000 Apligraf units have been shipped to date, reaching patients around the world.

About Apligraf

Apligraf contains two layers of human living cells: a layer of differentiated keratinocytes and a layer of fibroblasts in a collagen matrix. When placed on a wound previously unresponsive to treatment, Apligraf provides cells, collagen matrix and other proteins that provide a covering that has been demonstrated to promote healing. In multiple controlled clinical studies, Apligraf has been shown to be an effective and safe wound care treatment, superior to conventional treatments.
