PETACH TIKVA, Israel – April 29, 2013 – Macrocure (www.macrocure.com), a biotechnology company developing advanced cell therapy products, announced today that Dr. Latricia Allen, a physician in the group of Dr. Vickie R. Driver DPM, will present a poster focusing on the positive results of a recent study conducted with the company’s flagship product, CureXcell®, at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care - Wound Healing Society’s Annual Meeting, May 1-5 in Denver, Colorado.
The poster Dr. Allen will present is titled, “A prospective multi-center 24 week observational study evaluating wound healing outcomes in 131 patients in seven community wound care clinics in the largest HMO In Israel, treated with human activated leukocytes suspension, CureXcell."
