Intact Fish Skin
Wound treatment - Kerecis has developed the unique, patented Kerecis™ Omega3 fish-skin technology, where intact fish skin is used for tissue regeneration by transplantation. The Kerecis™ Omega3 transplantation technology is used to reconstruct the skin in for example burn wounds and chronic wounds. Other tissue-transplant products are based on tissues of human and porcine origin. The Kerecis™ Omega3 fish skin offers improved economics and clinical performance, as well as reduced disease transfer risk and no cultural constraints on usage.
Surgical use - Globally millions of dura repair, hernia repair and breast reconstruction operations are performed annually. Most commonly synthetic mesh products are used to provide reinforcement in such operations. Complications may arise post-operatively, including rejection of the mesh that is used to repair the defect. Kerecis provides a unique reconstruction material that provides strong repair hold is re-vascularized and gradually is replaced by the patient's own tissue – a promise for patients with challenging surgical complications.
