AVITA Medical Announces Schedule for Six RECELL® Device Presentations at American Burn Association (ABA) 50th Annual Meeting

Published: Apr 03, 2018

VALENCIA, Calif. & MELBOURNE, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Avita Medical(ASX: AVH, OTCQX: AVMXY) announced today new data to be presented describing clinical and cost-savings advantages of RECELL® Device in the treatment of severe burns at the American Burn Association (ABA) 50th Annual Meeting to be held from April 10 through 13, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago in Chicago. This is the first time clinical investigators are presenting the full effectiveness and safety data from the two pivotal trials used to support AVITA Medical’s U.S. PreMarket Approval (PMA) application for the treatment of burn injuries.

RECELL Device is an investigational medical device developed by AVITA Medical and designed to facilitate skin regeneration for the treatment of burns and other wounds while reducing the amount of skin harvested at the time of surgery. Reduction in donor site skin requirements has important benefits from both clinical and health economic perspectives.

One of the RECELL Device pivotal studies has been selected as a top five abstract for presentation during a plenary session at the ABA conference. Researchers also will present the positive results from other clinical studies and the conclusions from a model showing the health economic benefits of RECELL Device.

ABOUT AVITA MEDICAL LIMITED

AVITA Medical is a regenerative medicine company with a technology platform positioned to address unmet medical needs in burns, chronic wounds, and aesthetics indications. AVITA Medical’s patented and proprietary collection and application technology provides innovative treatment solutions derived from the regenerative properties of a patient’s own skin. Our medical devices work by preparing a REGENERATIVE EPITHELIAL SUSPENSION™, an autologous suspension comprised of the patient’s own skin cells and wound healing factors that are necessary to regenerate natural healthy skin. This autologous suspension is then sprayed onto the areas of the patient to be treated.

In the United States, RECELL Device is an investigational device limited by federal law to investigational use. In September 2017, AVITA Medical submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) a PreMarket Approval (PMA) application for RECELL for the treatment of burn injuries.

In all countries outside of Europe, our portfolio is marketed under the RECELL Device brand to promote skin healing in a wide range of applications including burns, chronic wounds and aesthetics. RECELL Device is TGA-registered in Australia, and CFDA-cleared in China.

In Europe, our portfolio of medical device products received CE-mark approval as three tailored product presentations, with three individual brand names. RECELL Device is designed for the treatment of burns and plastic reconstructive procedures; REGENERCELL™ Autologous Cell Harvesting Device has been formulated for chronic wounds including leg and foot ulcers; and RENOVACELL™ Autologous Cell Harvesting Device is tailored for aesthetic applications including the restoration of pigmentation.
