KCFBiopharma – Advanced Tissue-Engineered Wound Care Products

iCrowdNewswire - Dec 21, 2015

KCFBiopharma is a biotechnology company dedicated to developing innovative cell based therapies for chronic wound care.

When added to healthcare providers’ lineup of possible treatments for these conditions, KCFB’s products will help successfully treat more chronic venous wounds, improve patient comfort, and reduce healthcare costs associated with treating chronic wounds.

  

KCFB’s treatments have already been used in a large patient population in the EU with positive results. Now, we’re ready to begin the process of pursuing registration of this treatment in order to make it available to the medical community in EU and in the US.

 
 
 
 

Chronic venous wounds, such as leg and foot ulcers, are considered by many in the healthcare industry to be the silent epidemic of the 21st century.

Much of that cost can be attributed to the inefficiency and ineffectiveness of existing treatment options, and a failure by leading wound care companies to innovate and improve, more effective treatment options. 

The medical community needs new, innovative, effective methods for treating the “silent epidemic” of chronic wounds. In recent years, regenerative medicine — the science of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function — has emerged as a promising alternative to traditional, minimally effective treatment methods.

Regenerative medicine is the new frontier of treatment, and KCFBiopharma is leading the way. 

 
 
 
 

KCFBiopharma uses state-of-the-art cell based therapy approaches to develop advanced tissue-engineered wound care products.

KCFB’s products use a combination of  human cells  to restore the health of tissues and organs affected by leg ulcers and other chronic venous wounds. Our products allow the safe use of human tissue in the form of allogeneic cells acting as biocarriers of proteins contained in the cell nuclei. These act as natural antibiotics and antinflammatories to restore the natural microenvironment of the wounds necessary to achieve healing. KCFB has developed two products, each using a different type of cells to promote healing:

  

KCFB’s treatments have been shown to be effective for treating chronic venous leg ulcers that are unresponsive or recurrent following other conventional standard of care products. Because each of KCFB’s products features only one type of human cell, healthcare professionals will be able to more accurately determine when our products are indicated for a patient’s condition, and more accurately predict what the outcome of the treatment will be. 

  

In short: by adding KC Plus and FB Plus to their roster of wound care options, healthcare providers can:

Successfully treat more chronic venous wounds

Improve patient comfort and recovery times

Reduce costs associated with treating chronic wounds

The results have shown excellent efficacy outcome with a good tolerability and safety profile. 80% of patients treated with KC Plus product saw a reduction of at least 50% within 5 weeks, while 71% of patients treated with FB Plus product saw similar results. Both KC Plus and FB Plus highly and significantly improve Wound Bed Score, a rating system used to evaluate the quality of wound care.

KCFBiopharma is in the final stages of preparation for two patents to protect the innovations behind our KC Plus and FB Plus products.

With data from a large patient population, KCFB is ready to advance its development program in EU, where it is already underway, and in the United States as well.
