Richard Hague, President & COO, commented, “Our team firmly believes that a successful BLA for SkinTE will create a highly valuable asset based on the clinical data that will support our eventual BLA submission, which should drive widespread adoption, enable favorable payer coverage and clear marketing claims, and provide regulatory exclusivity if SkinTE is deemed a reference product. With over 1,200 clinical uses of SkinTE to date and many positive outcomes, we look forward to submitting an IND and commencing the clinical trials that will support our BLA, so that many more patients can benefit from treatment with SkinTE.”
