Surgical repair of hernias is one of the most commonly performed operations worldwide.
Physicians typically use synthetic meshes which often cause adverse events like chronic pain, scar tissues. Meshes must be customized prior implantation and sutured during the procedure.
Our PhotoBioCure technology revolutionizes the process. We develop injectable patches which form customized implants in situ in vivo. Once injected material is cured with safe UV light and forms flexible patch. The procedure is simple and no sutures are needed. The patch slowly degrades in time and is replaced by natural tissue.
We completed preclinical studies and are starting first-in-man trials.
