Peripheral Nerve Regeneration

KeraNetics is developing next generation collagen conduit filler that facilitates accelerated repair of nerve injuries. Keratin hydrogel fills the nerve conduit to provide a structural matrix for nerve cell migration and attachment.

Pre-clinical studies in non-human primates show that nerve conduction velocity increased 78.5 % with KeraGenics Nerve conduit filler compared to empty conduits after 52 weeks of treatments.
