Vergenix Wound Dressing is wound care sheet composed of pure recombinant human collagen scaffold that provides a moist wound healing environment. The product, a type I collagen, is produced by transgenic tobacco plants. It is designed to treat acute and chronic wounds, such as pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, abrasions, and second-degree burns.
US licensing procedures for medical devices are shorter than the procedure for pharmaceuticals. CollPlant believes that while Vergenix is based on human recombinant collagen produced through advanced biotechnological techniques, the FDA decision that the CDRH will review the product is very important for the company, as the regulatory procedures are significantly simpler, shorter, and cheaper than for biological and pharmaceutical products. This is a breakthrough since Vergenix will be a pioneering product for CollPlant's subsequent products.
CollPlant's share price rose 9.9% by mid-afternoon to NIS 1.20, giving a market cap of NIS 126 million.
