TissueGen: Biodegradable drug-loaded fibers for controlled drug release
TissueGen (Dallas) will be at MD&M East as it continues to tout its Elute biodegradable drug-loaded fiber products. The Dallas-based company has a patented modification of a 19th century manufacturing process that allows for extrusion of biodegradable drug-loaded fibers at room temperature. The novel process preserves the biological activity of incorporated drugs and therapeutic agents, allowing for their sustained controlled release in implantable medical devices.
Elute recently garnered TissueGen the “Medical Device Engineering Breakthrough” award from the independent organization MedTech Breakthrough.
