CollPlant wins Israeli grant for BioInk 3D printed organs

Regenerative medicine company CollPlant said today it received agrant from the Israel Innovation Authority to help support its plant-based rhCollagen technology for tissue repairs. The grant will specifically support uses of its rhCollagen-based formulations intended for use as BioInk for 3D printing tissues and organs, the company said. The total budget for the program $1.2 million (NIS 4.2 million), of which the grant will finance 30% of, subject to certain conditions. Terms of the grant will require that CollPlant pay royalties to the IIA on future sales of technology developed with the funds, up to the full grant amount, CollPlant said. “In addition to providing immediate non-dilutive funding, this grant from the Israel Innovation Authority represents an important validation of our BioInk technology and its market potential. With the recent opening of our new cGMP production facility in Rehovot, Israel, we are well positioned to meet growing demand for our BioInk and tissue repair products. We are grateful to the IIA for this recognition,” CEO Yehiel Tal said in a press release. Last September, CollPlant said it inked a $5 million private placement deal to support its tissue repair technology.

Authors: Romano F, Manavella V, Bottone M, Toma M, Dellavia C, Aimetti M Abstract The present case series evaluated three-dimensional volumetric bone tissue changes and new bone formation in severely resorbed extraction sockets augmented with Bio-Oss collagen and a covering collagen membrane in nine chronic periodontitis patients. Healing was by secondary intention. After 12 months of healing, the augmentation procedure appeared not only to compensate for bone remodeling but also appeared to repair a significant portion of the buccal wall. The mineralized tissue filled the 91.49% ± 6.77% of the maximum volum...

ConclusionsPatients undergoing open, laparoscopic, and robotic inguinal hernia repairs showed no evidence of differing pain medication requirements. The implication that minimally-invasive techniques cause less pain may be inaccurate.

This study aimed at determining whether R248Q and R248W were involved in OSCC cells' acquiring aggressive phenotypes, using SAS, HSC4 and Ca9-22 cell lines. First, two mutants p53, R248Q and R248W, were respectively transfected into SAS cells harboring recessive-type p53 (E336X). As a result, SAS cells expressing R248Q showed highly spreading, motile and invasive activities compared to parent or mock-transfected cells whereas those expressing R248W did not increase those activities. Secondly, in HSC4 cells harboring R248Q and Ca9-22 cells harboring R248W, expressions of the mutants p53 were inhibited by the transfection wi...

The number of patients undergoing trial of labor after caesarean section (TOLAC) is also increasing. Three professional societies provide detailed guidelines based on scientific evidence for the management of patients attempting vaginal birth after caesarean section (VBAC). However, they do not provide any recommendations f...

Authors: Adamczyk A, Biesaga B, Klimek M, Mucha-Małecka A Abstract Normal tissues reactions after radiotherapy vary considerably even between patients receiving the same treatment. The ability to predict the differences in radiosensitivity before radiotherapy would have important implication. Patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the: (i) cervix (38 patients) and (ii) larynx (19 patients) were studied. Control group consisted of 9 healthy women. To assess individual radiosensitivity/chemoradiosensitivity alkaline version of comet assay was performed using isolated peripheral blood lymphocytes from cancer patien...
